Congratulations to the six members of the Lakes Math Team, The Obliques, who qualified for State:

These students qualified after performing well at the Regional Competition at Northern Illinois University on Saturday, February 24. In all, 24 Eagles competed at the contest. Schneiderheinze took first place in Algebra 1 to earn his State bid, and the Algebra 1 Team took second place. The State contest will take place May 5 at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
Earlier this season, The Obliques placed third overall at the NLCC meet. The team is coached by math teachers Jim Valsa and Azie Cherestal.
