Putnam Competition Results

McMaster’s 2016 Putnam team finished 68th in this year’s William Lowell Putnam competition; 415 teams competed.  This is the second best performance by McMaster of all-time.  The team consisted of Matthew Jordan, Kyle MacDonald and Sang Woo Park.  Sang Woo Park in particular did very well finishing 300th out of 4200 participants which is the highest placement by someone from McMaster in recent memory.  Full results for the contest can be found at http://kskedlaya.org/putnam-archive/putnam2016results.html
