In a fun but intense competition with other local college students, Anne James and Alec Visser, also known as the Trollgamers, ranked among the Top 5 teams for the Associated Colleges of the Chicago Area (ACCA) Computer Programming Competition.

Not only did Anna and James come in the top 5, but their 2 person team went up against teams consisting of 4 members each.  Congratulations to our novice team!
