how the math contest went today

I coach the Math Contest Team for the middle school (Churchill MS in Carmichael, CA). Today the kids competed in the Sacramento Regional MathCounts competition.

The Churchill School Team (consists of 4 kids) were the second place team, behind Holmes MS from Davis) and advance to the California State Competition at UC Davis in a few weeks.

In addition, two Churchill students who were not on the team were still among the highest placing individuals and get to go to State. This shows that, once again, I'm terrible at picking who goes on the team.

So that's six kids going to state from Churchill (out of 12 from the region). Great job by the kids! They were thrilled and I was too. It was a good math contest morning.
