According to Devon Prep junior Alexandru Damian of Audubon, competing on Devon Prep’s Mathletes team isn’t just about solving math problems, it’s also about learning skills to solve problems in life.
Recently those skills helped Damian and his fellow teammates, coached by teacher Chip Hollowell, win Devon Prep’s first archdiocesan Mathletes championship. In addition two team members, senior Soham Bharne and junior Shyamal Patel, both of Norristown, earned perfect scores during the competition.
Devon Prep’s team had won the Western Division championship to qualify for the archdiocesan competition. Only nine elite teams participated in the championship competition this year. Hollowell has been working with Devon Prep’s team for several years and is pleased with the outcome.
“I am so very proud of these young men,” he said. “This is a great achievement that we have been striving to obtain over the last three years.”
