Top mathematics students from area high schools were recently honored at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point at the 45rd Annual Central Wisconsin Mathematics League banquet.
The banquet marked the culmination of three meets held throughout the academic year. Students from 50 Central Wisconsin schools competed in algebra, geometry and advanced mathematics.
