Virginia Tech Regional Mathematics Contest

Gathering up a missed, unreported Department news item from the Fall, it is nevertheless with enthusiasm that we congratulate the sixteen Carolina undergraduate students who competed in the 35th annual Virgina Tech Regional Mathematics Contest on October 26th, 2013. Contestants at each participating school took a two-and-a-half hour exam on their own campus under the supervision of one of their own faculty members. Overall, 107 colleges participated with 726 entrants and five students scored the maximum number of points.

The top scorers from Carolina were:

  • Michael Greenberg, 16th
  • Marshall Lochbaum, 39th
  • Tyler Blanton, 65th
  • Xiaoyin (Eugene) Liu, 89th
  • Craig Gambegi, 141st

Congratulations to all and a special thank you to Professor Justin Sawon for administering the event here at Carolina.
