Riley Mathletes Advance to State Tournament

March 15, 2021

After an intense virtual math competition, Riley Avenue Elementary School mathletes Nolan Bruen, Alexandria Governali, Kaelyn Kistinger, Julia Pelis and Ryan Quick have advanced to the Mathleague.org state tournament on May 8.

“All of our mathletes did an amazing job,” said advisor Linda Wallace. “It was a very intense competition and well above grade level.”

During the regional competition on Feb. 20, Riley’s team of 11 fourth grade math superstars concentrated on four timed rounds: the Sprint, Number Sense, Target and Team.

“It was a learning experience for all of us, but these students persevered throughout the entire competition,” said Wallace.

The Riverhead Central School District congratulates the 11 participating students, who, in addition to the five regional winners, include Benjamin Foehr, Kevin Garcia Gonzalez, Grayson Gradischer, Na'Kyra Mahoney, Tye Marelli and Shane Wallace.
