Kennesaw State University hosted its second annual math bowl competition Friday for seventh- and eighth-grade students from Campbell, Griffin and Smitha middle schools in southeast Cobb. Griffin was the overall school winner this year.

“I like how we all work together, finish everything together and win together,” said Shivani Narine, who is an eighth-grader at Smitha.

This is her second year on the team, and she said she joined because math, fortunately, has always come easy for her.

Campbell seventh-grader Bianca Lopez said she, too, enjoys being on the team because “teamwork is a building block you need.”

“You also have a lot of fun in there because you get to see what all you know and meet new people,” she said.
