Holy Family Catholic School, 3005 W. Kathleen Ave., in Coeur d’Alene, competed in the Northern Lights Regional Math Festival on April 28. The day-long competition took Holy Family’s fourth-grade class to St. Mary’s Catholic School in Moscow, Idaho.
The 23 students carpooled in 10 cars in snowy weather and slick roads, dressed in their team shirts, for a day of math with more than 100 students.
Lucy Clifford, the fourth-grade teacher at Holy Family, traveled to Moscow with her students. “They had a great time. It was a fun day for everybody. They’re proud of their school, and they were happy to show off their abilities.”
Holy Family students earning awards include Brayden Lanphere, who placed second in the individual competition among all students. Team awards include Lanphere and Grace Ganz of the Blue team who received first place; Jillian Wurmlinger of the Gold team was awarded first place; Gracie Lassiter of the Red team received first place; Mason McInnis and Noah Zurosky of the Blue team were awarded second place; Will Betts of the Gold team received second place; Jordan Plonka of the Red team received second place; Noah Corbin and Jacob Jaeger of the Blue team were awarded third place; and Jake Schriger of the Red team received third place.
