Student Teams Compete at ACM Mid-Atlantic Programming Contest

Congratulations to our two student teams for their strong showing at the Mid-Atlantic Regionals of the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest.

The NC State team consisting of Ricky Patel, Yusuf Simonson and Mike Winters placed 14th in the region, while the team of Matt Rakow, Tyler Arehart, Casey Dahlin and Ted Lowery placed 18th out of over 30 teams competing in the region.

Both teams were coached by Dr. Thomas Honeycutt.

Special thanks to SAS Institute and Harris Corp for their sponsorship support to the teams.

The ACM Mid-Atlantic Region was held at Duke University on October 25. The top competitors in the region will go on to compete in the international competition next April in Stockholm.

The ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest fosters creativity, teamwork and innovation in building new software programs, and enables students to test their ability to perform under pressure. It is the oldest, largest and most prestigious programming contest in the world.
