The Providence Day School math team recently won the ninth annual Carolina Panthers Numbers Crunch high school math competition for the second year in a row.
The team scored 66 out of 70 points on the pre-calculus and calculus-level test, which featured problems based on the physics, geometry and ratios of football, defeating seven other schools.
Providence Day received the Dr. Robert C. Whitton Memorial Trophy, presented in honor of the Davidson College math professor who lost his life this past year. Whitton had previously served as one of the Numbers Crunch competition judges.
The Providence Day team, coached by Providence Day instructor James Reeder and student coach Chris Munley, included five students: John Cambern, Tate Krasner, Michael Lucia, Jack Munley and Alex Sherman.
