Westminster Math Team Competes in Regional Programming Contest

Two teams of Westminster College students recently competed in the East Central North American Regional Programming Tournament held at Ashland College.

 "We had a record 131 teams competing from Western Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, and Ontario," said Dr. John Bonomo, associate professor of computer science at Westminster College.  "The big news this year is that Westminster's Team A placed 15th out of 131, which is the best we've ever done in the competition.  No other liberal arts school placed higher than we did."

 Team A consisted of Bradley Patton, William Shondelmyer, and JeremyAlberth.  Team B, which finished 97th in the competition, consisted of Susan Johns, Bradley Kita, and Geoffrey Zimmerman.

 "Depending on the size of the region, the top two or three teams of the 31 regions advance to make the 75 teams that compete at the International Collegiate Programming Contest," Bonomo said.    "I will be judging the international contest, which will be held in Shanghai in April.  It's my fourth year in a row that I've been a judge, and the third time that they've used one of my problems in the competition."

This year regional contests were held simultaneously at Ashland University, the University of Cincinnati, Carnegie Mellon University, and Sheridan University.

 Bonomo, who has been with Westminster College since 1998, earned his undergraduate and master's degrees from Catholic University, and his Ph.D. from Purdue University.  He has been a judge or head judge at the regional competitions for the past six years, and a problem contributor for the past seven.
