The St. Dominic Savio Computer Science Team traveled to Frisco to compete in the First Bytes Computer Science Tournament.  105 teams competed, including some of the top teams in the state.  Teams had two hours to solve six complex problems using Java. 

Emily Shoemaker and Jonathan Shoemaker represented Savio in the competition and our team was placed in the advanced division due to past successes.  Plano West High School jumped out to an early lead, but were ultimately unable to solve one of the problems.  Only Savio and perennial power Richardson High School managed to solve all six problems,  and our team managed to finish eight minutes faster to win the title.   It was a great start to the competitive computer science season, and hopefully the first of many successful tournaments.
