Success at major programming contest
November 02, 2010
On Saturday, October 30th, two Angelo State teams competed in the South Central USA Regional of the 2010 ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest at Baylor University (one of four sites in the regional) in Waco, Texas, and they made ASU’s best showing in the ACM contest in fourteen years.
Out of eight problems, one ASU team solved four perfectly and the other solved two. According to the regional standings, the four-point performance was good enough for 27th place out of 71 teams overall, 5th place out of 21 teams from undergraduate-only computer science programs, and 1st place out of 5 undergraduate-only teams at the Baylor site. The ASU students taking part were James Reid, Kyle Corases, Mat Gray, Joey Burney, Zach Marsden, Justin Springer and Zachary Holley, coached by Rob LeGrand and Tim Roden.
