(with Bethany Ritter as the

Southeastern Regional ACM Programming Competition. Twelve
different schools were represented.
After five hours of
programming, Winthrop placed as the third best school of the 12 schools

Southern Mississippi, Mercer, College of Charleston, The
Citadel, Jacksonville University, Mississippi State University,
Morehouse College, Columbus State, Georgia Southern, University of
