Cox, Meekins, and Barkley tops in Putnam
The William Lowell Putnam Competition is a preeminent mathematics competition for undergraduate college students in the United States and Canada. The 2019 NCSU team came in very strong, ranking 61 out of 488 competing teams from the US and Canada, that is, ranking in the 87th percentile. NCSU has increased its ranking in this competition in each of the past 3 years.
Among the NCSU contestants, the top three places go to math majors Bryant Cox, Everett Meekins (not pictured), and Grant Barkley. Congratulations to all!
