Sylvester- Seventh graders at Worth County Middle School participated in a mouse maze competition Thursday.

The students designed, and built the mazes, but had to incorporate angles and lines they've learned about in class. The mazes that most confused the mice won.

"It was fun I had a lot of fun doing it," says Ryan Cook.

"I thought it was going to be easy but after I got to doing it it was hard," adds Trey Shipp.

"They without a doubt know some geometry that they didn't know coming into this project," says School Improvement Specialist Laurie Pacetti.

Ryan Cook and Trey Shipp took first place awards and thanks to the South Georgia Wildcats won tickets to the first home game.
