For the third year in a row, a Luverne High School math league team participated in state competition.

The 10-member team competed at South St. Paul High School on Monday, March 13, finishing in seventh place.

Members include seniors Mallory Von Tersch, Parker Carbonneau, Camden Janiszeski, Anja Jarchow, Reese Louwagie, Logan Ommen; juniors Zoey Berghorst, Steven Woods; freshmen Ella Hoogendorn and Zander Carbonneau.

Third-year adviser Aaron Perkins said 46 students were members of this year’s LHS math league, with students participating in one or more of five meets conducted each month since November.

The Luverne math league finished first in Section 2A and was runner-up in the Dynamic South Division, finishing behind Montevideo High School.

“It was close the entire year,” Perkins said. “We had four of the top 10 scores in both divisions and section.”

Perkins said competition is tough at the state level.

Teams answer as many of the 24 questions they can in 12 minutes — many without the use of a calculator – in the four topic areas of algebra, geometry, trigonometry and precalculus.
