Messiah College’s programming team, consisting of students Michael Adams, Anthony Spargo, and Zachary Felix, has pulled off another impressive computer programming contest victory this weekend. The Dickinson College Programming Contest is a four-hour competition that hosts 20 teams from 9 different schools in a race to solve eight complex computer programming problems. Our team solved 7 of 8 problems, more than any other team, earning them first place, a commemorative plaque, and gift certificates. A second team from Messiah, consisting of students Avery deGruchy (’14), Matt Guzick (’14), and Nathan Chaney (’15), also did well, solving 3 problems and earning 9th place. Both teams from Messiah had the remarkable achievement of getting all their problems right on the first try.
