The Harvard-Westlake Middle School MathCounts team earned 15th place in the March 14 state MathCounts math competition at University of California, Irvine after earning third place in the chapter division competition in Torrance on Feb. 28.

The competition allows middle school students to compete against students from other schools on a local, state and national level.

Students can qualify either individually or as a team to participate in the state competition, and only the top three schools from each chapter are invited to participate.
