Members of the Greencastle math team include Stephen Dombrowski, Ben Huff, Eihi Yoshinaya, Mason Howard Casey Crary and coach Gayle Hansen.

Coached by Brad Kingma, the GHS science team includes Howard, Maiesha Rashid, Bailey Williams and Crary.

Greencastle’s total of 31 Academic Super Bowl Title keeps GHS in the all-time lead for titles, ahead of West Lafayette. For now, the Tippecanoe County School has 29 total titles following a win in the Class 2 math competition. West Lafayette could also claim the interdisciplinary title later this week, pulling closer to Greencastle’s total.

The North Putnam English team includes Breanna Richardson, Ruby Sullivan, Grace Timm, Nicole Huffman, Lily Gaddis and coach Monique Fields.
