Worcester County Mathematics League

The Worcester County Mathematics League (WOCOMAL) is a high school mathematics league composed of 32 high schools, most of which are in Worcester County, Massachusetts. It organizes seven mathematics competitions per year, four at the "varsity" level (up to grade 12) and three at the "freshman" level (up to grade nine, including middle school students).

Top schools from the varsity competition are selected to attend the Massachusetts Association of Mathematics Leagues state competition.

A competition consists of four or five individual rounds, plus a team round. Each student competes in three of the individual rounds.

In each individual round, competiting students have ten minutes to answer three questions, worth one, two, and three points. A maximum meet score for a student is eighteen points.

The Worcester County Mathematics League was originally formed in 1963 as the Southern Worcester County Mathematics League (Sowocomal).

The league currently has members from western Middlesex County. It has had members from Hampshire County, Massachusetts, and Windham County, Connecticut.

The most successful school in league history is St. John's High School in Shrewsbury, with twelve league championships in the fourteen year span between 1983-84 and 1996-97.

Algonquin Regional High School won six consecutive league championships from 1998-99 to 2003-04.

The 2005-06 league champion was Worcester Academy, which also won the state and New England small school championships.
