Student from Park City High School competed in the State Math competition last month.
The 38 students who traveled to the Utah State campus is Logan to compete in the 3A tournament on March 11, were tested with questions from the following topics: geometry, algebra, number theory, combinatorics, and probability, in roughly equal numbers from each category, according to Debbie Alcox, PCHS teacher.
Teachers involved in preparing the students for the competition were Donna Hall, Andrea Payne and Erin Colberg.
Two levels were tested during the event junior (7-9 grades) and senior (10-12 grades). Nine students competing out of Park City High School swept the tournament in team events, all finishing in first place.
In the tenth grade team competition, Dominic Croce, Douglas Nagie and Charlie Martz won their division.
Elanor Johnston, Subiabre Macarena and Devon Dunmire won the 11th grade division.
The the top finishers from the senior level were John Runberg, Nigel Long and Zachary Mimlitz.
"This type of success takes effort from the students as well as a solid foundation given to them by all their math teachers throughout their educational career," Alcox said. "The students did a fantastic job."
