KCHS is 3rd in Shore computer programming competition

SALISBURY — A team of three Kent County High School students tied for third in a computer programming competition last month at Salisbury University.

Senior Ben Loller, sophomore Lynden Saunders and freshman Ben Hinton walked away with the third-place trophy at the Eastern Shore High School Computer Programming Competition.

Kent County Public Schools’ Supervisor of Information Technology William Poore coached the team.

This annual programming competition is hosted by the Salisbury University computer science department. There are team and individual competition rounds.

“The goal of the Annual Eastern Shore High School Computer Programming Competition is to promote and support computer programming in the secondary education community of the Lower- and Mid-Eastern Shore counties of Delmarva,” the Salisbury University website states.

Superintendent Karen Couch commended the KCHS students and their coach.

“They did very well,” Couch said, adding, “We were probably the smallest school that was competing.”

KCHS tied with James M. Bennett High School in Salisbury.

All told, there were seven teams.
