In individual competition, Liang placed first in algebra and finished in the top 25% in geometry, while Wang took first place in the general test. Lin, Krishnan, Vailaya and Zhu were in the 25% of their respective individual tests. As a team, Harker took second place in the Power Round, which emphasizes proof writing. In the Guts Round, an 80-minute live-scored exam, Harker placed eighth. Harker’s team finished in fifth place overall.
