The "Mathemagicians" team finished sixth out of 34 schools in a regional competition on Feb. 4 at Google headquarters in Mountain View, thus qualifying for the state competition.

Four of 10 team members will advance: Darren Shen, Bill Li, Nicholas Chang and Georgia Wluka. Other team members are: Nicholas Way, Jee-Hyun (Roy) Kim, Mateo Weiner, Karan Bhasin, Adrian Deutscher-Bishop and Sarah Ryu. Coach is Gerald Wluka.

The top four individual competitors from each state competition receive an all-expenses-paid trip to the national competition, which takes place in May.
