Congratulations to all the NNS students who participated in the KPBSD Elementary Math Bowl in Seward on Thursday, May 5. NNS had 4 teams (17 students) make the trip, with teams from around the entire peninsula participating. Students who represented NNS included: Lochlan Quiner, Larry Degner, Braden Ellis, Dalton Mullins, Andrew Pennison, Bryan Sledge, Jamie Yerkes, Melanie Sexton, Zack Tuttle, Alex Langseth, Aaron McCollum, Lucas Demars-Meireis, Rylee Jackson, Verity Feltman, Jacob Anderson, Garrett Ellis and Thomas Halliday.

The top scoring NNS team was the "Mathadons," who tied for 8th place overall out of 34 teams. This team was made up of Melanie Sexton (captain), Bryan Sledge, Lochlan Quiner, Aaron McCollum, and Thomas Halliday. The 2nd highest scoring NNS team was the "Mathematical Minds," who placed 13th. This team consisted of Zack Tuttle (captain), Andrew Pennison, Jamie Yerkes and Garrett Ellis. The Lightning Round required students to give correct answers for each timed question in order to remain in the competition. Out of the 17 NNS students at the meet, the top performers were Andrew Pennison, Rylee Jackson and Thomas Halliday. Out of about a total of 150 students, Thomas Halliday was one of only about 10 students who completed the entire Lightening Round without a missed question.
