On Friday, Oct. 19, several students competed in a math competition at the University of Nebraska Omaha. Math teacher Thad Nelson led the students as they hoped to excel against the challenging competition.

Seniors Kyle Christensen, Reagan Darrah, Abby Fenn, Allison Green, Sydni Huisman, Wynn Keller, and Brendan Mass attended with juniors Jacob Reelfs, and Cainan Davidson; sophomores Emma Ehmke and Jonas Keay; and freshmen Rachel Kinsella, Josie Davidson, and Payton Chapman.

Senior Kyle Christensen said he was excited for the competition. Christensen said, “It’s my first year competing, and I’ve heard the schools attending really take this seriously. I think we’ll hold our own for being one of the smaller schools in attendance.”

Treynor was one of 29 schools attending. Nelson said, “We are the only school from Iowa that will be there, and it features mostly schools from the Omaha metro and Lincoln.” This was the school’s second year of attendance.

Other students have said they were nervous for the competition. Students that went last year said other schools are highly skilled and have practiced these types of problems before.

Senior Brendan Mass enjoyed going to the competition and thought it was an interesting experience.  Mass said, “The schools we faced came well prepared, and the questions we received were extremely challenging.  It was cool to see other student’s math abilities.”

The Treynor students had a successful day at the competition.  Students said it was nice to switch up from a normal math class to a competitive environment.  They represented Treynor’s best and brightest well.
