Colorado Springs-area high school students performed well at the 40th Annual Math Day Swanson and Math Bowl competitions, held last weekend at Colorado State University’s Pueblo campus.

More than 200 students from 18 high schools participated in Math Day activities, including Antonito, Coronado, Cripple Creek-Victor, Crowley County, D-70-Online, Doherty, Ellicott, Liberty, Pine Creek, Pueblo Centennial, Pueblo County, Pueblo East, Pueblo West, Rocky Ford, Rye, South, Swallows Charter and Swink.

Coronado High School in Colorado Springs School District 11 took first in the Math Bowl, with team members Austin Crawford, Rygar Schyberg, and Titus Sharman.  

The competition requires two three-person teams to go head-to-head in a 15-minute race for points. Each team alternately is given a mathematical question and has 25 seconds to respond. 

The Swanson Competition is named after Clarence Swanson, a long-time chair of the math department. 

The in-depth, problem-solving, written test offers students the opportunity to vie for six trophies.  Of the 191 students to take the exam, the top six contestants are listed below in rank order with the highest listed first followed by the student’s high school:

     1.  Titus Sharman, Coronado High School

     2.  Kyle Ma, Pine Creek High School

     3.  Betty Niu, Ellicott High School

     4.  Jennifer Yates, Liberty High School

     5.  Abby Shrack, Pine Creek High School
