Each team was given up to three hours to solve the most problems in the fastest time.

The competition’s first place team of Gracie Zaro ‘17, Dominic DeMarco ‘18 and Hannah Amendola ‘19 each received a $100 Amazon card for their win. The other St. Luke’s teams in the top ten were Ian Smith ’17, Ben Jackson ‘18, Sophia Feldman ‘18; and Dennis Polyakov ‘18, Jamie Ullman ‘21, Ajit Akole ‘18. US computer science teacher and event chaperone Zach Brusko said, “This was a tough competition, and as rookies up against teams with more competition experience. I was thrilled at how well all the St. Luke’s teams did.”
