-A A +A

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A 13-year-old Albuquerque boy beat out 121 other math whizzes from across the state at the annual Mathcounts competition. An eighth grade student from Los Alamos also earned a spot at the national competition.

Andy Chen, an eighth-grader at Albuquerque Academy, won the contest Saturday and will now head to the national Mathcounts competition.

The nationwide competition will be held in May in Washington, D.C., and it'll be Chen's fourth time competing there.

Chen ranked 26th at nationals last year in Orlando, Fla., and says he's looking forward to going again.

Joining Chen at nationals will be Alexandr Wang, an eighth-grader at Los Alamos Middle School who made the nationals last year; Randy Zhang, a seventh-grader at Desert Ridge Middle School; and Ben Zolyomi, an eight-grader at Albuquerque Academy.
