66 + 94 = $1,000: 'Mathletes' win Best Loser contest

April 4, 2012

PLYMOUTH — Plymouth High School math teachers Michael Delp and Earl Boyer recently solved an equation they can take great pride in.
The two collectively lost more than 150 pounds in just 10 weeks to win the “Best Loser” competition — and the grand prize of $1,000 — at Fitness Forum.
“It was pretty exciting,” said Boyer. “We didn’t pressure each other, but I think we both put pressure on ourselves to pull our own weight on the team. Each of us wanted to do a good job for the other. I wouldn’t have been able to do this well on my own.”
