Two brilliant Bronco seniors are being congratulated this week after earning 1st place honors at the Lemont Invitational on Wednesday, January 29th. David Batka and Allen Nilson (both from Lombard) earned a 1st place in every event they competed in - PreCalculus Team, Junior-Senior 8-Person Team and Junior-Senior 2-Person Team.
"Our seniors also placed 5th place - Calculator Team and 2nd place on the Relay Team," said Math Department Chair and Math Team Coach, Mrs. Chrissy McManus.
Overall, the Montini Math Team finished in 4th place out of twenty-one schools, "A majority of these teams are in divisions above ours," explained McManus. The twenty-one schools were comprised of one from 1A, three from 2A (Montini Catholic's division), nine 3AA, and eight 4AA.
Montini Catholic's Math Team includes 60+ members annually and is the only Catholic school in Division 2A to qualify for State every year since 2001!
