At the ISU site, the team "codeMonkeys" with Ben Towle, Marshall Moats, and Adrian Broskie finished in second place, and the team, "mastercooks" with Roba Abbajabal, Ben Johnson, and Maxim Popov finished in third place. All Iowa State teams, including the top three finishers, were coached by Michael Gerten.
