Wyatt, a seventh-grader at Santa Catalina Lower and Middle School, competed at the state level in the Mathcounts Competition Series.
Mathcounts is a national middle school mathematics competition that builds problem-solving skills and fosters achievement through four levels of fun, in-person, spelling bee-style contests. In response to COVID-19, there were more contests this year and they were held online.
In the school competition, Wyatt was one of Catalina's eight qualifying students to move on to the chapter competition. As the top scorer in the group, he then moved on to the invitational competition in February, where he competed among the best students from schools in the area. Wyatt's problem-solving skills qualified him for the state competition at the end of March, where he competed with top students across California, many a grade level older.
Although the journey ends there, it has been with great pride to have Wyatt represent Santa Catalina this past school year. Congratulations, Wyatt!
