"UNI Mathematics Majors Ben Castle and Mark Ronnenberg placed second at
the 2014 Iowa Collegiate Mathematics
Competition <http://sections.maa.org/iowa/Activities/Contest/>.
This annual contest is a 3 hour mathematics problem solving competition
designed for teams of three students. The ICMC is sponsored by the Iowa
Section of the Mathematical Association of
America<http://sections.maa.org/iowa/>.

This year the contest was to be held at UNI, but weather forced all to stay
home and work the exam on their own campuses. Unperturbed by the weather,
Ben and Mark scored an impressive 89 out of 100 possible points. (The first
place team had three members and scored 97/100, and the third highest score
was 58/100.) There were 18 teams from 10 participating Iowa Colleges and
Universities.

Congratulations on an impressive result, Ben and Mark."
