The Eagle Math Team has solved a formula for success and dominated the region to become a state powerhouse in Mathematics. The team placed 3rd in the State UIL calculator applications competition for the second time in three years. This team is also the reigning regional champion three years in a row and district champion four years in a row.
Rudy Medina, CHS mathematics teacher, is extremely proud of the team’s accomplishments.
“No other El Paso School has ever won regionals three years in a row in a math competition,” Medina said. “Additionally, we are the only El Paso city math team to have qualified a team for UIL state in the last three years. No other El Paso city math team has gone even once in that time span.”
Individually, two students became regional champions the last three years – Enrique Padilla in 2014 and 2015, and Tiffany Knox in 2016. CHS has sent a math student to UIL state for the last four years.
The talented mathematicians have also competed in the Texas Math Science Coaches Association (TMSCA) and placed second in 2014 and third in 2015.
