GVVC Conference Math Relay
The Golden Valley Vernon County Conference Math Relay took place at NEVC March 9, 2016. Ballard was represented by 24 students, four from each math class in grades 7-12. After 6 years as Conference Champs, Ballard passed the traveling trophy to Montrose, but the students fully intend to take it back again next year!
Two Ballard individuals did come home with medals, as did four of the six teams. Levi Meade placed 1st in Advanced Math, and Sabrina Walsh placed 2nd in the same contest. The Advanced Math team (Levi Meade, Sabrina Walsh, Morgan Meade, and TJ Sickels) won 2nd place. The Geometry team (Addie Dowse, Camryn East, Colton Page, and Trent Tate) placed 3rd as did the Algebra 2 team (Stephen Jones, Aiyana Murchie, Micah Patrick, and Holly Tate). The 8th grade team (Dale Dowse, Donovan Hinrichs, Jake Light, and Garrett Oerke) came home with top honors by placing 1st.
Mrs. Kershner wants to thank all the students who were willing to participate and hopes they will continue to enjoy competing.
