Whippet Programmers Compete at MSOE

The WHS Computer Programming Team competed at the annual Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) Opportunity Conference Computer Programming Competition on Friday, November 22. Twelve students including Colin Chenoweth, Brian Apgar, Arno Crowley, Shawn Chan, Gwynne Sahyun, Morgan Stillwagon, Broderick Frye, Cody Rupke, Nikole Pelot, Andy Vo, Elijah Grall, and Reilly Aschenbrener were given 2.5 hours to solve 9 problems of varying difficulty using Java. Ten of the Whitewater participants have completed or are currently enrolled in AP Computer Science A; the other two participants are in their first semester of computer programming. The students enjoyed a new venue for the competition as MSOE has just opened a brand new computer science building, Diercks Hall, and the competition was held in the shadow of their new supercomputer, ROSIE.

The three Whitewater teams competed against 48 teams from 20 other schools from southeast Wisconsin and northern Illinois including Brookfield Central, Cary-Grove, Janesville Craig, Crystal Lake Central, Grafton, Homestead, Marquette, Menomenee Falls, Milton, Neuqua Valley, New Berlin West, New Berlin Eisenhower, Janesville Parker, Prairie Ridge, Rufus King, Shorewood, Stoughton, University School of Milwaukee, Waukesha County Home School, and Whitefish Bay. University School of Milwaukee came out on top with Neuqua Valley securing both second and third place. The top two Whitewater teams finished in 15th and 26th.
