April 25, 2015 proved to be an exciting day for VCES SOAR math students as they participated for the first time in this years Safari Kid’s Annual Math Bowl Tournament. Valley Christian entered two five member teams, one fourth grade and one fifth grade made up of SOAR math students taking top honors! Led by their teacher, Mrs. Sizemore, they competed against nine other teams from around the Bay Area. The tournament was divided into individual and team rounds. VCES swept the fourth and fifth grade individual honors, as Viraj Ghose (4th grade) and Cameron Maloney (5th grade) took second place honors, while Bryant Wong (4th grade) and Ethan Stewart (5th grade) earned first place awards. If that wasn’t exciting enough, the 4th grade team, Jana Fasheh, Viraj Ghose, Brayden Tam, and Bryant Wong finished in 3rd place. The 5th grade team, Jeremy Elvander, Cameron Maloney, Luke Oh, and Ethan Stewart captured 1st place. What a confirmation from God to each of these students!
