Iowa (AP) - Something just didn't add up after the Iowa State Math Championship. Hours after finishing third behind Iowa City High and Cedar Falls at the contest at the University of Northern Iowa on Saturday, the West High School team returned to Iowa City to recheck its scores. Coach Joy Walker said it is something the team routinely does. "Our kids like to talk math," Walker said. "When we got back, we thought we'd take a peek and see how things added up." Good thing they did. There was a 60-point scoring error, which meant that West and not City was the champion. Cedar Falls finished third. Event coordinator Pat Fox said she sensed there might be a problem. West has won the championship the past four years so it seemed strange to see them in third place. "That's why I started questioning when they brought me the results," Fox said. She said students had been entering the scores throughout the meet and some scores were overlooked.
