The Pepperell Middle School eighth-grade math team won the 2015 edition of the Berry College Math Meet held last week at Berry College.  Pepperell eighth-grader Kathleen Winn tied for first place overall high scorer during the competition.  Public and private middle school math teams from the area come together at Berry each year to display mathematical talents.  This year, 13 teams competed in the annual math event.  

The Pepperell Middle team members were: Kathleen Winn, Gracie Hall, Bruce Anderson, Jakob Liggons, Ramiro Alanis, Wesley Wade, Taylor Carles and Zack Blalock.  Scott Bevis, math teacher at Pepperell Middle, was the team coach.  

The win was a deja vu moment for many of the Pepperell team members as the Pepperell team's victory made them repeat winners at the Berry meet.  The Pepperell team won at the college's competition in 2013 as sixth-graders.  In another repeat, Kathleen Winn was the high scorer two years ago. Bruce Anderson, Gracie Hall and Taylor Carles were also on the sixth-grade team.
