Following the MATHCOUNTS State Competition, held at the Kennebec Valley Community College in early March, Lyman Moore Middle School eighth-grader James Hawkes is going to the national MATHCOUNTS competition in Washington, D.C. in May, after placing first in the state competition for the second year in a row.

The Lyman Moore team – James Hawkes, Sam Scala, Jack Bonney, Max Brown and Jessica Ross  – placed second in the state. Jessica Ross finished second highest for the team, at 15th place over-all. Schools from all over Maine were represented.

This is the third year that James Hawkes will go the national competition. “In the 31-year history of MATHCOUNTS, there has never been a mathlete to go to nationals all three years,” said Julie Meyers, Lyman Moore math teacher and MATHCOUNTS coach. “James came into the final countdown round of the competition in second place but won with a convincing performance in the countdown round.”
