Accompanying teachers were Linda Heeler and Sara Rogers.
Local students placing in the contest included Payne, fourth place in problem solving; Richardson, fifth place in problem solving; Hung, Orshiso and Mattock, sixth place in problem solving; and Yocum, seventh place in problem solving.
Kreizinger took second in concepts, and Hung took third. Both will move on to state-level competition, also in Warrensburg, on April 27.
