McBee, Wilson and Trinity Collegiate schools Take Top Honors in Math Tournament
      FLORENCE, S.C. – McBee High School, Wilson High School and Trinity Collegiate School took top honors at the 31st Pee Dee Regional High School Mathematics Tournament. The tournament, sponsored by the Pee Dee Education Center and Francis Marion University, was held in the university’s Chapman Auditorium in McNair Science Building

    The 31st-annual event featured more than 190 students from 13 area schools.

    Participating schools were divided into Division I, Division II and Division III schools. Schools with A and AA athletic classifications were considered Division I, while AAA and AAAA athletic classifications were considered Division II. Division III consists of private schools in the Pee Dee.

    High schools participating included: Creek Bridge, Dillon, Hannah-Pamplico, Johnsonville, Marion, McBee and Mullins in Division I; Mayo High School for Math, Science and Technology, West Florence and Wilson in Division II; and The Byrnes School, Marlboro Academy and Trinity Collegiate School in Division III.

    All students participated in a one-hour, 16-question, written competition during the morning portion of the tournament. Shang-lin Chang of Wilson High School earned top honors with the highest individual results on the exam. Kenny Winburn of Mayo High School for Math, Science and Technology was second and Allison Gaskins and Tsung-Jui Tsai of Wilson tied for third.

     Receiving honorable mention recognition were Yoshiya Miyata and Tom Sitti of Trinity Collegiate School; Edward Collins, Paula Dey, Sorin Pirau, and Joy Tsai of Wilson High School; Joseph Richard Blackmon-Dishaw and Brian McFadden of Mayo High School for Math, Science and Technology; Chih-Chieh “Jack” Chan of West Florence High School; Robert H. Floyd of Mullins High School; and Spencer Collins McLeod of McBee High School.

     The top four individual test scores from each school were combined to create a team score. The four schools in each division with the highest team score qualified for the afternoon finals.

    The finals consisted of four individuals from each qualifying school answering questions flashed onto an overhead screen. Points were awarded to the first, second, and third persons who answered correctly.

    In Division I, McBee High School won its first overall team title by defeating Mullins High School (second). The four individuals representing McBee in the finals were Calin Jowers, Spencer McLeod, Anna Rollings and Megan Wayne. Shelia Gandy serves as the adviser for the McBee math team.
