Wesley Ru placed 7th, Yohan Jeon placed 12th and Jason Chen placed 14th. The lead teacher is Alvarado Math Department Chair Mike Mills and the co-advisor is Linda Kim.
Mr. Mills with first place winner Kyle Miho. Kyle had the highest individual score out of all 89 students in our region. Kyle only missed one problem in the entire competition.
