The Albany Junior High Math Team just completed their 2016-2017 season with a day spent at the MATHCOUNTS competition held at St. Cloud State University on February 7th. Prior to that, the team of 7 was a part of the Minnesota Junior High Math League, competing in 5 meets from October to January with 7 other area teams. Albany finished 3rd in their division. Top individual awards went to Gina Wege (2nd) and Natalie Fischer (5th), both receiving medals for their accomplishment! At MATHCOUNTS, Natalie Fischer finished in the top 16 (tie for 7th place) and was awarded the opportunity to participate in the Countdown Round. The team, coached by senior high math teacher, Jeanne Bruns, practiced Wednesday mornings at 7:20-8:05.
