DSCN0091.JPGFoo of Oberlin (Ted Warner, Katie Kuksenok, and Michael Brooks) did well at the Programming Contest today.  They solved three of eight problems and placed first among 40 teams competing at the Youngstown site and 14th among 124 teams overall in the Regional.  One of the problems they solved was solved by only four other teams, two from CMU, one from Waterloo, and one from Purdue.

DSCN0092.JPGOberlin Oriented Programmers (Thomas Ramfjord, Penglu Zhao, and Zach Levine) didn’t fare so well (they didn’t solve any of the problems), but they gained valuable experience for next year’s contest.
