After-match follow up November 15: Brahmas competed in the Sweet Sixteen round!
Math Madness Update: The Brahma mathletes just fought hard but went down in defeat to St. Mark’s School of Texas. 26-35.
We had 33 students competing today: Some stars who can earn 5-8 points for the team in any given match and some who have victories scoring 1 or 2 points each time. The consistent participation of all of these students is what allows DBHS to remain a highly-ranked competition math school. I’m going to list all of our mathletes from today’s competition below. Please recognize their efforts if you see them.
The math team just finished a tough two weeks with five competitions, three in the last two days. This includes the American Mathematics Competition from which we will have several students move on to the American Invitational in February. Brahmas keep on problem solving! 😊
Special Thanks to Coach Damien Mair for helping out all season and for Coach Jimmy Kuo for helping yesterday and today!
Here are the stars:

After-match follow up. October 18: The Brahmas won our first Math Madness match with a perfect score of 40/40! For an exciting finish, we were at 39 points with a minute left when our vice president Jennifer Cheng came through to finish her perfect score and raise the team up to 40 points! All of our high scorers are listed below. If you know these students, please congratulate them! This was a fantastic showing for the Brahmas! Note: we had forty students competing and the top five scores count for the team score.
