Harvard-Westlake MATHCOUNTS Team Advances to State Competition
The Harvard-Westlake MATHCOUNTS team--eighth graders Jacob Davidson, Megan Chang, Sarah Moon, and Yujung Park--placed third in last weekend's chapter competition and will be competing in the MATHCOUNTS state competition on March 14 at the University of California, Irvine.
Approximately 140,000 students from all 50 states, U.S. territories, and the state and Defense Department school systems worldwide participate annually in school MATHCOUNTS competitions, with about 40,000 students participating at the chapter competitions.
MATHCOUNTS was founded by the National Society of Professional Engineers, National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and CNA Foundation. Students enrolled in the sixth, seventh or eighth grade are eligible to participate in the competition series, which culminates in a national competition held in Boston in May.

Congratulations to the team and their coaches: Andy Si ’18 and math teachers Karen Salerno, Matt Maring, and Dan Reeves.
