On Tuesday 16 August the annual NumberWorks’nWords O’MAthalon was held at the Lion Foundation Arena for Years 9 and 10.
In the Year 9 grade there were five teams entered from Otago Boys’ High School in a pool of around 40 teams. The 30 minute competition started off very closely and finished the same way.
The OBHS C team of Matthew Pyper, Peter Crosson, Ayoub Ahmad and Angus Henderson maintained their composure in the face of some tricky questions and eventually came out in first place - a great effort!
In the Year 10 grade we had 6 teams entered, two of which just narrowly missed out on making it into the top three placings.
Altogether we had over 40 boys participating in this event, all of whom represented themselves and their school well.
