The 2002 Indiana ARML teams consisted of high school students from across Indiana and Urbana, Illinois who are interested in participating in one of the most challenging large-scale high-school mathematics competitions in America. Indiana sent three teams consisting of forty students to the twenty-seventh ARML. Along with coaches Henjin Chi, Josh Holden, Ron Ji and John Rickert, parents Frank Ko, Susanna Ma, Ceslo Mendes, Xiaoming Wu, and Cheng Zhao traveled with the team as proctors and graders. Indiana Gold finished seventeenth in Division A this year. Indiana Blue finished 61st and Indiana Silver was 65th. Michale Catlin earned a National Honor Score by correctly answering 7 of 8 during the individual round. Charles Tam and Jerry Wu were awarded team high score medals. susan Hu, Rosemary Luo, John Moskal, Noah Wright, and David Yust earned team high score medals for Indiana Blue, and Phillip Meiser led Indiana Silver. Congratulations to 2000-2001 team member Feng Tu, who will participate in the RSI program at MIT.

Pictures are now available.

In 2001, The Four Indiana teams sent fifty-five students to Iowa for the twenty-sixth ARML. Along with Henjin Chi, Kim Foltz, and John Rickert, parents Maureen Brustkern, Sheely Chen, Jonathan Fruth, Najia Jin, Steven Maynard, and Carlos Mendes traveled with the teams.
Indiana Gold tied with Ontario A for eleventh, their second best finish ever. Andrew Chi earned a national honor score, scoring 7 out of 8 on the individual round for the third time. Michael Catlin and Jerry Wu were awarded team high score medals. Max Brustkern earned the individual high score medal for the Indiana Blue, which finished tied for forty-fourth in Division B. Indiana Silver placed 66th in Division B and was paced by Ho Young Whang during the individual round. Allan Patterson and Michael Peregrim earned high score honors for the Indiana Red, which finished 75th in Division B.

In 2000, The Two Indiana teams sent thirty-five students to Iowa for the twenty-fifth ARML. Along with Henjin Chi, John Emert, Zac Franco, Kim Foltz, and John Rickert, parents Najia Jin, John McNett, and John Moskal traveled with the teams. The Indiana Gold turned in a solid performance, finishing 14th, as five students tied for the team high score: Andrew Chi, Emily Kendall, Michael Reschly, Bill Waite, and Xiang Yan. Four other students, Jean Broughton, Chris McNett, Christine Nee, and Prashant Tatineni correctly answered one fewer than these leaders. Philip Powell paced the Indiana Blue on the individual round.
Congratulations to Andrew Chi and Emily Kendall for their acceptance to the RSI program at MIT, and to 1999 team member Michael Catlin, who will participate in the 2000 Mathematics Olympiad Summer Program
