Fayette Dominates Regional Math Tournament

Math is definitely a strong subject for Fayette’s middle school students. Competitors swept the entire Griffin RESA Regional Middle School Math Contest, minus a tie for second in the smaller school division and a third place defeat in the larger school division.

Whitewater Middle took first place in Division I (smaller schools) with Fayette Middle tying for second with Taylor Street Middle and Bennett’s Mill Middle rounding out the division with a third place victory.

In Division II (larger schools), Rising Starr Middle and J.C. Booth Middle finished first and second, respectively.

Once again, Fayette swept the individual winners category. Nicholas Cooper of Rising Starr took first place, Brent Huang, also of Rising Starr, placed second and Sarika Reddy of Fayette Middle took third.

The contest is a regional competition among middle schools in the Griffin RESA region that includes Butts, Fayette, Henry, Lamar, Newton, Pike, Griffin-Spalding and Upson school systems.
