FHSU Math Relays
Fort Hays State University hosts its annual Math Relays in November. This is an opportunity for high school students to compete against many other students (usually around 800 total students, grades 9-12). Students may compete individually or on a three-person team. Six mathematic categories are tested: number sense, trigonometry, algebraic manipulations, informal geometry, applications of algebra, and calculations with calculators.
Thursday November 10, 2016 St. John’s Catholic High School went to Fort Hays State University for the 38th annual Math Relays and came away as 1A champions for the sixth straight year. Even more, the Blujays finished 2nd overall (1A-6A), the highest a 1A school has ever placed. This marks the fourth time in the last five years that St. John’s finished in the top five overall; only two other schools share that accomplishment–4A McPherson and 5A Salina Central.
