Programming Competition Results

Muskingum University's ACM chapter held its first annual programming contest on September 26th.  This is an event designed to help teams in the region prepare for the ACM regional programming contest, held in late October.  We had eight teams from five area schools (Muskingum, Dennison, Ohio Wesleyan, Baldwin Wallace, and Marietta).  The teams had five hours to solve as many of eight programming problems as they could.

Problems ranged from Martian Mathematics to International Espionage to Temporal Commerce, and more.  First place was taken by Team Dan Baker from Dennison University, consisting of Neal Barcelo, Joe Paat, and Bryce Pioske.  Second place was taken by one of our own Muskingum teams, Drop Table Users, consisting of Chris Bowles, Amy Miller, and Sarah Hare.  Third place was taken by an Ohio Wesleyan team, Bishops A, consisting of David Khoo, and Vagif Baratov.

The final standings, and the problem writeups along with judging data, are available at
