A job well done for our Waterloo Black ACM team who finished 13th out of 128 teams at this year's ICPC World Finals in Morocco. Only two teams from Canada attended the World Finals - Waterloo and the University of Calgary. 

In an e-mail sent earlier today, ACM coach Troy Vasiga said, "I am very proud of the team for their effort, diligence and dedication"

The team solved nine of the 13 competition problems.

The contest results can be found on the Baylor ICPC website

Congratulations, to Volodymyr LyubinetsDeon Nicholas, Geoffry Song, and team coach Troy Vasiga on an excellent competition season.


Good luck to the Waterloo Black ACM team competing at this year's world finals in Morocco. The Waterloo Black ACM team won their spot at the world finals by finishing first at the East Central North America Association for Computing Machinery Regional Programming Contest in Windsor, Ontario this past November.
