Wheatley Senior Mathletes Take 2nd Place; Junior Team Earns 10th Place Honors!

On Friday, February 2nd, twenty of our students participated in the 35th Annual Nassau Mathematics Tournament (NMT) at SUNY College of Old Westbury. The contest was attended by students representing the majority of Nassau County schools. Our students performed admirably in both the individual and the team rounds.

The “Senior” team earned 2nd Place overall! This team was comprised of:

  • Tony Deluxe
  • Vedant Singh
  • Trenton Wong
  • Kenton Wu
  • Brandon Zhu

In the individual contests, Brandon Zhu and Vedant Singh finished in 1st and 2nd place, respectively. (A tiebreaker was implemented to decide their final rankings.)

Our “Junior” team brought home 10th Place Honors overall. This team consisted of

  • Sahil Jain
  • Viraj Jayam
  • Karen Li
  • Victor Li
  • Ryan Wu

A big “thank you” to our Mathletes Advisor, John Beleckas. Special thanks to our Mathematics Chair Robert Teseo and to NCIML President Kevin Myers for making this event possible.
