Programmers Win Competition

The Belmont University programming team won First Place Site honors at the 2004 Mid-Central USA Intercollegiate Program Contest on November 6 at Tennessee Technological University (TTU). Justin Jordan, Jeremy Stephens and Michael Yedlicka competed against ten other teams at TTU while eight other campuses simultaneously held competitions. The contest pits teams of three against seven programming problems. The teams share a computer and keyboard and have five hours to solve as many problems as they can. The Belmont team solved four problems in five hours. Belmont’s sophomore team – Stuart Childs, Sergei Temkin and Yves Toleno – solved three problems.
