WC hosts 19th annual Coyote Area Math Championship

Coyote Area Math Championship

Students from area high schools converged on the Weatherford College campus Friday, Feb. 5, for the 19th annual Coyote Area Math Championship to compete in pre-calculus and calculus competitions via written tests.

Normally attended by more than a dozen schools, this year’s event was smaller due to COVID-19 restriction facings many schools. Weatherford, Peaster, Mineral Wells and Alvord high schools participated along with Trinity Christian Academy.

“In the 19 years of hosting the competition, the contest has never been canceled,” said Shirley Brown, WC math department chair. “It was delayed two weeks one year because of icy roads. We have had to deal with rainstorms, flooded parking lots, falling snow, a gas leak on campus, freezing temperatures and other disruptions over the 19 years. Now we can add COVID to the list.”

Event organizers plan to rename the contest next year in honor of Pat Cook, the retired math department chair who began the contest and recently passed away.
