A team of sixth-graders scored big at the eighth annual Suffolk County Elementary Math Tournament at Stony Brook University.

The team placed 10th out of 52 teams, and team member Aaron Held placed fourth in the individual competition out of 260 students.

To earn the recognitions, the students were required to answer challenging Math Olympiad-style problems in a timed tournament.

“The kids had a blast competing and spending the day on a college campus,” said math teacher Megan Ryan.
