ELLISVILLE – Last year’s Jones County Junior College Bobcat Math League winners, the Stringer Red Devils, have come out in the first week of competition dominating the Sylva Bay Saints in the Einstein Division. Stringer slaughtered Sylva Bay 77 to 23. Stringer Mathletes, Austin Phillips, Chris Anderson, Keyshawn Kennedy and Sylva Bay’s Alexa Pruitt were also top scorers overall and are tied for second place. All of the students answered the questions with an 80 percent accuracy average. Lawrence County’s Ben Rushing proved he’s going to be a tough contender again this year with a 100 percent accuracy rate, leading the individual competition for answering the most questions correct.  He was second to Presbyterian Christian High School’s Nathan Lin in last years’ competition, who has since graduated. Bay Springs, Quitman and Taylorsville had this week off in the Einstein Division.
 
In the Fibonacci Division, Richton came out the winner in the county duel with Perry Central. The Rebels of Richton easily beat the Bulldogs, 62 to 10. South Jones pounded its county rival Northeast Jones. The Braves beat the Tigers 39 to 27. Wayne County had a bye week.
 
The Raleigh Lions blew away their competitors, the Laurel Tornadoes 61 to 27 in the Newton League. Mize narrowly escaped the jaws of defeat in a tough match with the Mt. Olive Pirates, 22 to 20. West Jones will face Raleigh next week with the extra week to prepare.
 
Newcomers to the League, the Sacred Heart Crusaders dominated the Collins Tigers 91-16 in the first week of action in the Pythagoras Division. Lawrence County’s Cougars knocked off the Seminary Bulldogs 56 to 44. Presbyterian Christian had the week off but will face Seminary next week.
