Congratulations to the School of Computing and Engineering’s (SCE) two ACM student teams who competed at the 20th Annual Consortium for Computing Sciences in Colleges (CCSC) Central Plains Conference programming contest at Westminster College in Fulton, MO on April 4-5, 2014.
The two teams competed in the field of 39 teams from 16 schools in four states. Team UMKC 1 (Emily Thomas, Eric Sundquist, Varun Narisetty) finished second overall, with 2 problems solved in a total time of 201 minutes. Team UMKC 0 (Robert Holland, Dan Robison, Avinash Reddy Desireddy) were in a multi-way tie in the middle of the pack. The second place win was the highest finishing rank of any UMKC team at this contest since the ACM student chapter members have been competing.
The students will now be shifting their attention to next fall’s ACM contest, to be held the first weekend in November. Teaching Professor Brian Hare is the ACM faculty advisor for the team.
