The Outlaws Math Team recently participated in the American Math Competitions (AMC). The AMC 10 is for high school freshmen and sophomores; the AMC 12 is for juniors and seniors.

These tests are administered nationwide, with several hundred thousand students participating.

"To me, the most remarkable aspect of this year's test at SHS is that we had 59 students take the tests," said team advisor Rob Corrigan. "At many - even large - schools, the math team is comprised of a dozen or fewer students. It's remarkable to me that such a large number of SHS students chose to pay to register, then come into school 90 minutes early to sit through an optional and grueling test."

The Outlaws Math Team has practices at lunchtime every Monday. So far this year, 70 different SHS students have participated in at least one math team event, and Corrigan reports routinely having 30 students participating each week.
