Grand Island Central Catholic senior Randall Kim placed fourth of the 1,400 students competing in the written exam during UNL Math Day on Nov. 14 on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus.

“This is the highest finish anyone from GICC has ever had,” said Central Catholic math instructor Marilyn Luther. “Randall’s finish placed him above many class A students.”

The 11 Grand Island Central Catholic students taking the Probe I test earned the runner-up trophy. GICC students participating were Eli Fox, Grace Herbek, Isaac Herbek, Sam Herbek, Brandon Hollister, Brayton Johnson, Randall Kim, Alex King, Rylee Lonnemann, Jonathan Novinski and Linden Sack.

The top 40 individual finishers advanced to take the UNL Math Day Probe 2 Test, in which Kim finished fourth.

Following the written testing, GICC competed in the Class 4 Quiz Bowl portion of UNL Math Day. With an undefeated record, the Crusader team of seniors, Randall Kim, Sam Herbek, Eli Fox and Linden Sack, earned the championship trophy over Lincoln Lutheran in the final round.
