The Varsity squad entered the last event in 2nd place hoping to clinch their first ever meet championship. They put in a great effort and came in 5th place, just 12 points behind the winners. Though the squad has finished higher in past competitions, this was the closest they’ve come to winning a meet. The top finishers were the teams from Waiakea, Waipahu, Kaimuki Christian, and Kamehameha – Hilo.

The IPA Junior Varsity Mathletes finished a strong 13th place out of 22 schools. The JV division includes all schools, with ʻIolani, Punahou, and Waipahu finishing in the top three spots.

The second meet of the season for the IPA Mathletes will be held at Kailua High School on October 20, 2018. The events and topics for the second competition include Algebra 2: Ratio, Proportion, and Variation; Geometry: Similar Triangles; Algebra 1: Linear Equations with One Variable; and Trigonometry: Equations & Graphs.

Good luck to all our IPA Mathletes!
