Our MathCounts Club participated in the State Competition on Saturday, March 31st. Four of our students competed against over 100 of the top students from California. While we didn't advance to the nationals, we placed 21st against 48 schools. Most importantly, 4 students, Diego Connolly (8), Eric Xie McCarthy (8), Zander Denning (8) and Noah Han (7), gave their best and showed their love for math. They also got to experience how math is used in Astronomy! Thank you to these students' parents, as well as Mr. Aleman and Mr. Piumarta, for their support and dedication.

It is with great pride and satisfaction to announce that Thomas Starr King Middle School's MATHCOUNTS Club placed first in their division (and 5th amongst 42 schools in Los Angeles - schools such as Harvard Westlake and Palos Verdes). They have advanced to the 2018 SoCal Math Counts Competition which will be held on Saturday, March 31st, at the California Baptist University in Riverside.
Congratulations to our club sponsors and 9 competitors for making it this far, and best of luck in the upcoming competition!
