On Saturday, April 6, the WVU Tech department of Computer Science and Information Systems hosted the 2019 WVU Tech programming competition.

Students spent their time in the day-long competition putting their heads – and coding skills – to work solving a set of ten programming problems.

While the event started at 10:00 a.m., the main coding portion of the competition ran from 1:00 – 5:00 p.m.

Students competed in the programming competition in two divisions: one for freshmen and a second division for upperclassmen.

In the upperclassmen division, WVU Tech students Gregory Isaac Hughes and Mardigon Toler were winners, receiving $250 each. Thomas Wright and Nathan McClaugherty were first runner-ups, each receiving $150, while teammates Sean Durham and Chris Durham earned $100 each for the second runner-up spot.

In the freshmen division, Nicolas Null was the winner, receiving a $125 prize. Logan Bland was first runner-up, winning $70, and teammates John Morgan and John Clay landed in the second runner-up spot, winning $50 each.
