Seven Maywood students, plus one from a Marysville school to round out the team, combined to solve the cube faster than all but one team.

“Solving the cube requires a great deal of mathematical patterning and problem solving,” Maywood teacher Ron Ciraulo said. “Solving them quickly requires combining all those skills with physical dexterity and focused attention.”

Ben Royce and Davan Hwang led the team, solving their puzzles in just 30 seconds. Shelby Reese, Will Slaton, Spencer Slaton, Matt Barta and Andrew Chappelle were the other Maywood competitors.

“It’s truly a sight to behold watching them work so quickly,” Ciraulo said.
