The American Computer Science League All-Star Contest was held on May 26 at Barrington HS near Providence, RI. The CA team of Thomas Hoffman (’18), Matthew Modi (’20) and Vincent Wang (’18) finished in 6th place in this international competition, involving team programming and individual written rounds, and battling against top teams from the U.S., Romania, Canada and Croatia. Competition in our division was extremely tight. The team scored 39/40 on the programming round and 26/36 on the especially challenging written round, and were actually just two points behind 1st place!
For their written round performances, Thomas won an Amazon Echo Dot and Vincent, with a perfect score, brought home a Chromebook computer. Matthew, as the only returning underclassman, will likely be our team’s leader for next year.
