Goldston, Williams coach Discovery, Rainbow to more math honors
Math teams at Rainbow elementary and Discovery middle schools have multiplied their credentials at a contest in Birmingham.
The Rainbow team had only four students, one who is in third grade, yet they earned the second-place team trophy at the Alabama School of Fine Arts meet on Jan. 19.
Individually, Tony Tian won first place, while Corey Tolbert took fifth place and Aditi Limaye rated sixth. “Aditi’s sister, Maanasi, was the fourth participant,” Discovery coach Julie Goldston said. “The team chose Maanasi to represent them by picking up the team trophy. They are a special group of kids.”
