Morgan Middle School took 10 seventh graders and 10 eighth graders to the state math competition last month and the results are back.  Four of our students deserve a special congratulations for scoring in the top 30 percent.  They are Parker Bailey, Weston Blocker and Colin Smith with Peter Christensen scoring in the top 25 percent. Our students did great considering we were competing with all schools participating this year no matter their size.  
There were approximately 139 schools in the statewide competition.  The contest was held at Utah State University with the top math students in each grade of each school competing in an amazingly difficult test.  
The test took the students between two to three hours to take and included all higher level reasoning problems.  Congratulations to our 20 students who represented our middle school in an awesome performance.
