Alice Haeske, a sixth-grade student at Lake Ridge Middle School, is competing on May 1, in three rounds of mental number crunching during a cruise to the Bahamas as one of 16 finalists in the National Number Knockout (N2K) competition. All finalists have been through rigorous local and regional competitions to reach the finals. The winner will receive a $10,000 grand prize.

“I am honored and thankful to get to do something like this,” Alice said. “I still can’t believe it!”
