Laker Math Team City Champions

mathteam_3.jpeg

Our own Southwest Laker Math Team handily won the Minneapolis Division, easily outpacing Washburn and Hope Academy. The team also earned a very close second place finish to Hopkins High School in Section 6AAA, and wound up finishing in 13th place (out of 167 teams) in the overall state rankings. For reference, this is a very good finish for us. We are usually somewhere in the high teens to low twenties. 

Our Varsity Math Team has been officially invited to attend the 38th annual State Tournament held by the MN State High School Math League. This will be our sixteenth consecutive yearparticipating in the state tournament. All of this is the result of a lot of studying and hard work put in by students from our Varsity Team AND other up-and-coming, soon-to-be-varsity-team students.

The following students represented Southwest and participated on the Varsity Team at least once this year. Pass along your congratulations to them when you see them. Some of these students will be invited to represent Southwest at the State Tournament on March 14. Some pie might be consumed.

The following students attended at least one of the five competitions from the 2021-2022 season. Many of these students were trying Math Team and math competitions for the first time this year. It isn’t easy to typically earn high marks in class and then confront a much more challenging set of problems, perhaps missing several questions along the way. This collection of 59 students represents one of the largest math teams in the state of Minnesota. Go Lakers!
