Westminster College Hosts High School Computer Programming Contest

Westminster College recently hosted an area high school computer programming contest.

 Competing in the contest were four teams from Blackhawk High School with coach Nancy Mahosky, two teams from Mohawk High School with coach Ruth Ann Voland, one team from Greenville High School with coach Jenn Thompson; and one team from Ellwood City High School with coach Jonica Walters.

 Dr. John Bonomo, associate professor of computer science at Westminster College, designed and ran the contest.  Bonomo, who was recently selected as a judge for the fourth time for the International Programming Contest scheduled in March 2005 in Shanghai,  also had his problems accepted twice at this international competition.

 The competition included teams of three or four high school students, who worked for three hours on six computer programming problems.  Judging, which was done electronically, was based on the time it took to complete the problem and the number of incorrect submissions.

 Blackhawk team one included: Don Lambert, Dan Seery, and Chris Seltzer.
 Blackhawk team two included: Joe Synowka, Jeremy Hupp, and Andrew Spahr.
 Blackhawk team three included Eric Saut, Kevin Shanahan, and Brad Vukich.

 Mohawk team two included Chris Carr, Sara Aull, Brittany Harry, and Rey Colon.

 Greenville team included Joel Grover and Nekody Lenkner.

 The Ellwood City team took first place; Blackhawk team three took second place; and Blackhawk team one took third place.
