Two teams of students from Washington and Lee's Programming Club finished second and third at the annual Longwood Programming Competition, last month at Longwood University, in Farmville, Va.
Each three-member team tried to solve as many programming problems as possible in five hours. Ties were broken by the total time it took to solve all completed problems. A solution consists of code that correctly executes for all possible correctly formatted inputs. Both W&L teams solved five of the seven problems.
W&L's Team ArrayList, composed of senior Richard Marmorstein and first-years Lauren Revere and Jamie White, finished second. Team UnlimitedCodeWorks, composed of senior Garrett Koller and juniors Onye Ekenta and Samantha O'Dell, finished third.
The Programming Club is led by senior Alex Baca.
