Two Teams Enter Computer Programming Contest

Two Westminster College teams competed in the 17th annual Denison Spring Computer Programming Competition.

 Thirteen teams were given a set of six problems and four hours to solve as many as they could.  Teams are graded according to how many problems they solve correctly, how fast they solve them, and how many incorrect solutions they submit before getting a correct solution.

 The Westminster team of Jeremy Alberth, Ryan Moore, and Jake Romigh placed third by solving five of the six problems correctly, while the team of Colin Dean, Peter Lukich, Nicole Panza, and Andrew Slane placed seventh out of the 13 teams competing.
