A small team didn't stop Sacred Heart from showing up big in the standings at the California High School math contest on Dec. 1.

Sacred Heart School

Each "mathlete" on the team of seven earned at least one medal. Sacred Heart took home 18 individual medals and two team medals, which was enough for the team to take second place overall in the competition.

Included among the 18 individual medals, Claire Smeltzer earned second place freshman, Joseph Henke earned second place junior, and Brian Sierra earned second place senior. The team is currently seeking its 11th-straight conference title.
