On November 4, 2021 the Math Team headed to Lincoln-Sudbury to compete in the second math meet of the 2021-2022 season. Our team placed 1st among medium schools with a score of 103. This second meet was noticeably more difficult but our team remained focused and powered through the challenging problems, placing 5th behind large schools Lexington, AB, Winchester and LS. The top four scores for the medium school division were:
     103  Weston
       59  Canton
       57  Wilmington
       57  Burlington
In a field of 48 schools the overall total after the first two meets are:
      333  Lexington (Large)
      302  Acton-Boxboro (Large)
      276  Winchester (Large)
      228  Weston
      143  Canton (our long-standing rival!)
The regulars for this second meet who contributed to the overall team score of 103 were the following students:  seniors Anna Lian, William Houston, Lucy Wang and Jessie Yuan; juniors Ian Chang, Clara Odio and Daniel Zhu; sophomores Ryan Chao, Aidan Mozayeni and Owen Wang.
