The U-High math team placed first in the Illinois Council of Teachers of Mathematics competition on April 22 after a strong performance at their fifth and final ICTM competition of the season.

The team won the competition by nine points, closely edging out rival Glenbrook North.

For next year, the math team aims to win state again, climb up the North Scholastic Math League leaderboard and develop a closer bond within the team.

“We felt an overwhelming sense of elation,” team member Krish Khanna said about winning. “It seemed as though the culmination of our hard work over the past three months had paid off in a big win.”
