You can really count on these guys!
Congratulations to the Alvarado Mathcounts team at Alvarado Middle School in Rowland Heights for winning second place in  Saturday’s regional competition at Cal Poly Pomona. They missed first place by only one point.
The Alvarado students came in second out of 13 teams and will advance to the state competition at UC Irvine on March 15.
Kyle Miho, second from left, won first place in the competition, beating out 88 other students. He missed only one problem in the whole contest. Miho is the first student in school history to get a perfect score in the Mathcounts Sprint round answering 30 problems correctly.
