At its April 7 meeting, the Portland Board of Public Education and Superintendent Emmanuel Caulk honored Lyman Moore Middle School’s MATHCOUNTS team, along with the team’s coach, Julie Myers.

The team placed third in the regionals, with students Liam Niles, Justin Donaldson, Max Brown and Isabel Hungerford earning the right to participate as individuals.

The team then went on to the state MATHCOUNTS competition where the group placed fourth, closing the gap between the perennial powerhouses of Kennebunk and Falmouth. Representing Lyman Moore at the state competition were James Hawkes, Lauren Paradise, Felix Morrissey and Yifu Liu. James Hawkes won the honor of “Top MATHCOUNTS Student” in the state, winning first place. He is on his way to national competition for the second straight year. The 2015 Raytheon MATHCOUNTS National Championship will be held in Boston on May 8.

“Congratulations to all of these students on a job well done,” Caulk said.
