Hedonia and the ICPC Reigonals

We didn’t win, we got 9th out of 50 teams. We were the 6th highest school because of our place, and only top 3 go to the north America competition; but god damn do I feel amazing. Even though other people have had training and sort for this, just going into it for fun I managed to get so far (with the help of my team), and I was able to solve the hard questions which put us above the other teams. I feel so empowered even though I lost, and I’m so glad I did it.
