Coach Meredith McFarlin's team of eighth graders Alex Li, Samuel Lim, George Zhang, Forest Rudd, Mark Hieatt, and Kerry Zhao, and seventh graders Aaron Barawid and Parth Mishra won the regional MATHCOUNTS championship in early February at Southwest Tennessee Community College. The fearsome foursome of Hieatt, Rudd, Zhang, and Zhao then advanced to conquer the state competitions in March! The national championship in Washington, DC, will begin mid-May.
