Local Schools Do Well in Math Meet

Olympia High School placed second overall and Tumwater High School came in third in The First Annual High School Math Meet held at The Evergreen State College on February 27. Tacoma’s Stadium High School won the tournament. The tournament, co-directed by Evergreen faculty members Brian Walter and Vauhn Foster-Grahler, welcomed 31 high school students and their coaches to the Olympia campus. In addition to the team awards, local students fared well individually. Tumwater High School’s Leah Dalrymple finished second overall and second for 12th grade participants. Olympia High School’s Kirsten Allen and Austin Minor were first and second respectively at the 11th grade level. Local 10th grade winners included William Hoza from Olympia High School in second place and Dylan Mackenzie from Tumwater in third place. Stadium High School’s Eric Chou and Chris Han finished first and third, respectively, in the overall individual competition. I’ve included the complete results below.
