Congratulations to seniors Brandon Lieuw, Ben Eisner, Dorothy Hu and junior Joseph Primmer for placing fifth out of over 30 teams in the 2016 UMD High School Programming competition. In addition to placing in the competition, they won $400.

According to Hu, after a practice round, the teams were given three hours to solve nine problems that increased in difficulty. All of the solutions were then coded in Java.

“We were good at delegating problems to one another, communicating problems, spotting each other’s errors, and deciding which problems had more priority,” Hu said. “I’m very happy that we were able to place.”
