On Nov. 25, Delta Middle School (DMS) held the Delta County Middle School Math Counts competition. For the fifth time in six years, Paonia Elementary School (PES) took home the sixth grade team title, but this year the competition was exceptionally close. The one year PES didn’t win, the title was taken by DMS and this year PES only came out on top of DMS by half a point. Pictured are the 2013 PES team champions. From left to right (with their individual place in parenthesis) they are Logan Green (second), Katya Schwieterman (third), Nicole Jefferis (ninth) and Jalyn Walker (fourth).
