William and Mary

ACM Programming Contest

Chris Flynn, Ben Strahs, Bill SpracklinOn Saturday, October 25, William and Mary participated in the annual ACM Mid-Atlantic Regional Programming contest along with 150 other teams across the region at 8 different sites. Our team did their programming at Christopher Newport University alongside 10 other teams. The team was made up of Chris Flynn, Ben Strahs, and Bill Spracklin. The winning team was the University of Maryland which solved 7 out of 8 problems posed in the 5-hour time limit. Our team successfully solved a number of problems but in the end did not solve enough to qualify for the International Competition in Stockholm. If you are an undergraduate and would be interested in participating in this contest next year, please see Debbie Noonan (MS 116).
