Wissahickon Middle School MathCounts Team Advances to States

The Wissahickon Middle School MathCounts team bested over twenty area schools and placed six WMS competitors in the top 25% out of over 120 of the top math students in the region.

Finishing in the top ten after the written rounds were Kendra Kim, Vincent Zhang, Andy Wang, and Ryan O’Farrell who finished in 2nd, 3rd, 6th and 9th respectively. These four knocked all six of the other top ten finishers out of the oral Countdown Round and Vincent Zhang was crowned regional champion. The entire team of four have now advanced to the State Finals next month in Harrisburg.

Michael Sapozhnikov just missed the top ten by finishing in 11th place. Michael, Ethan Furman, Kenneth Cobbs, and Anoosha Shukla are also congratulated for their performance on Saturday and the contributions they made throughout the year.
