Competing against more than 20 teams, WT students Nikhil 'Nicky' Gandhi and Vivian Loh, both Class of 2024, Thomas Li, Class of 2025, and Vincent Loh, Class of 2026, earned first place overall as a team and the distinction of being the only team from the Pittsburgh Chapter to qualify to compete at the State MATHCOUNTS competition in March

Two team members also earned individual accolades: Vivian earned first place overall, winning the countdown round on the final question, while Vincent placed third overall. Both Vivian and Vincent qualified to compete individually at the state competition as well.
