There will be at least one new trophy added to the display cases in John Jay Middle School’s front hallway—for the MathCounts teams, which took first and third place in the Westchester MoMathlon competition on March 7, 2019.
John Jay’s top team will proceed to the Tournament of Champions at the National Museum of Mathematics in New York City this spring.
