Statistical Analysis Win Big

Two teams of students from Ward Melville High School recently entered the Rochester Institute of Technology Pre-College Statistical Data Analysis Competition and captured top honors.

For this year’s competition, teams vied to produce the most compelling statistical analysis of the 2009 National Football League end of season statistics. The Outliers team, made up of Jillian Shulder, Shannon Benson, Natalie Odell and Sarah Prokop, earned the Silver Prize, and the team called PAKK earned the only honorable mention at the competition. This team was comprised of Kavya Tangella, Kevin Wen, Patricia Seader and Aidan Winter.
