At the team level, the 1st grade team (Daniel Mekhtiev and Paul Shister), the 3rd grade team (Alex Chen, Abby Trop, and Kevin Wan), and the 6th grade team (Nishanth Siva, Maddie Webber, and Steven Yang) all came away with 1st place in their respective divisions while the high school team (Adam Davidson and Chloe Wong) won 2nd place.
