So far, CFHS Math League has had a successful season over zoom.

High School Math League is having a great season. This year, like many other activities they had meetings on zoom. Practices were held every Monday at around 5:45, and their meets were at 6 o’clock. There are 6 members this year which include two seniors, Isaiah Wildenberg and Mitchell McManus, two juniors, Kristopher Kehrberg and Samuel Coyle, Angel Zheng, a freshman, and Thomas Coyle, an eighth-grader. “Math League was certainly different this year with being online and only having half a team, but I think we were all close enough to maintain a little community spirit,” says Isaiah Wildenberg.
