UNCG Team Wins First Place at Programming Contest

On Saturday, March 17, 2012, computer science students Lance Everhart, Luke Eldridge, and Dayyan Borhanian took first place in the Triad Regional Programming Contest hosted by NC A&T University. Thirteen teams from 8 schools competed at the contest, and this UNCG team was the only one to complete all nine problems during the 4 hour competition. They narrowly defeated the second place team from High Point University, who completed 8 of the 9 problems. Everhart and Borhanian were also on the team that took first place at the 2011 competition, and this year’s win extends UNCG’s 1st-place winning streak at the Triad Programming Contest to three years.
