It's a first place win for the first time for these senior computer science majors.

Team "OU A" competed in the 2010 Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) South Central USA regional programming contest. The competition consisted of 71 teams from Okla., Texas and La.

Director of OU's School of Computer Science, Sridhar Radhakrishnan, said, "Our team was the only one to solve all eight problems. We still would have won without the final problem as we had the least completion time."

Team "OU A" has been invited to compete in the ACM International Contest in Cairo, February 27 to March 4.
