Putnam Results Now In
On Saturday, December 5, 2009, eight Grove City College students participated in the 70th annual William Lowell Putnam exam. The Putnam Exam is an undergraduate math competition consisting of 12 challenging problems worth 10 points each. Last year, 4036 students from 546 colleges participated in the Putnam. Each participating institution gets to designate a three student team and the Grove City team placed 99th in the nation. Team members included sophomore Brad Weaver (18 points), senior Lucas Waddell (8 points), and senior Lindsay Willett (18 points). Shaun Mills also did exceptionally well, tallying 21 points. Many years over half the participants score no points at all, so Grove City did very well this year. Other participants include Trevor Partridge, Mark Matthews, Becca Easterling, and Susannah Johnson. The students in the picture are, from left to right, Brad Weaver, Lucas Waddell, Trevor Partridge, Susannah Johnson, and Lindsay Willett.
