Winners of the Math Meet 2008

(April 25, 2008)

The Thirty Fourth Annual Math Field Day was held at the University of Wisconsin-Superior on April 23, 2008. Thirteen teams from eleven high schools in Wisconsin and Minnesota attended. The schools included Ashland, Carlton,  Cloquet, Drummond, Grantsburg, Hayward, Northwestern. Osceola, Rice Lake, Superior, and Webster.

The winner in the small school class was Northwestern with a score of 70. In the large school class, the runner-up was Ashland, scoring 78, and the winner was Rice Lake, scoring 86.
