A. C. Reynolds High and Smoky Mountain High Win Team Titles At WCU Computer Science Contest
A. C. Reynolds High and Smoky Mountain High captured team titles Tuesday (April 25) at the eleventh annual Western Carolina University Computer Science Programming Contest.
More than 70 students from eight of the region's high schools demonstrated their programming skills at WCU at the contest sponsored by the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science. The students were selected by their schools to compete in the contest because of their excellence in computer programming. The students compete in teams of one to three students and participate in one of two programming language divisions. The two programming languages are C++ and Pascal said Harold Williford, head of the WCU Department of Mathematics and Computer Science.
In the C++ programming language division the A.C. Reynolds High School team sponsored by Jeff Wilson and consisting of Sean Morrison, Kenneth Moody, and Michael Sally captured the title. The Asheville High School team sponsored by Richard Gabriel and consisting of Justin Welch, Jesse Miller, and Kent Mettle came in second. The West Henderson High School team sponsored by Larry Ashcraft and consisting of William Barry, Brad Cantrell, and Brian Becker was third.
In the Pascal programming language division the Smoky Mountain High School team sponsored by Cance Carnes and consisting of John Bateman, Robert Sneal, and Amanda Magruder captured the title.
