March 18th, 2019 by WCBC Radio

On Saturday, March 16, 2019, 36 regional middle school champs and qualifiers from across Maryland met at John’s Hopkins University in Baltimore for the Maryland State Mathcounts Finals. Allegany County was represented well with teams from Braddock and Bishop Walsh, as well as individuals from Braddock and Washington.


Fresh off of its seventh straight regional championship, Braddock defeated 28 finalists and finished in the elite eight. This was the highest finish for an Allegany County middle school in sixteen years. 253 of the top math students in the state took part in the very difficult four-hour competition.


Braddock 7th grader, Colin Sheehe, had the 19th best score of the day. Braddock’s team included Colin Sheehe, Cole Fiscus, Quinn Cohen, and Daniel Gregory. Braddock also had three individuals – Ian Kiddy, Zac Septoff, and Emmanuel Kujenga. Bishop Walsh’s team included Max Mathews, Maddy Brown, Lilly Stasko, and Gloria Nelson. Washington had one individual – Brayson Fleegle.

    Well Kevin, it looks like you can’t spell, so a statewide competition in math for 11-13 yr olds would be out of your league. These kids work hard.
