    “The entire MAMS math department is proud of Avidan and Paula's achievement and know that they have many more successful moments like this in their future,” explained Math chairperson David Prince.

    “It was an amazing experience and we will be back next year with plans to win top three and move on to the All-State competition,” said Michelle Biancardo, a technology teacher and club adviser.
