Greenwich High School math teacher Gordon Jones said the school’s math team had what was arguably their strongest season, winning the county title for the 9th consecutive season.

He said that while the season’s math league was cut short by weather, the Cardinals won by the largest margin ever.

In April the team traveled to Bristol where they won their ninth state title in the last 10 years, also by the largest margin ever.

The third place in New England Regionals was the high school’s highest finish ever, and was even more impressive, considering five of the eight on this year’s team are sophomores or freshmen.

Mr. Rudolph introduced the 2017-18 CT State Math Champions: Sam Florin (Grade 9), Jovita Li (Grade 11), Steven Ma (Grade 12), Jason Shi (Grade 12), Zachary Tanenbaum (Grade 11), Zachary Wang (Grade 10), Derrick Xiong (Grade 11), and Kyle Xiong (Grade 10).
