2017 Putnam Team Soars High

The 2017 William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition saw 4164 contestants from 568 colleges in the USA and Canada. There were also teams from 415 institutions.

The UConn delegation saw one of its best performances in recent years. Out of 415, our team ranked 49th overall. We placed 60th and 85th in 2016 and 2015, respectively, so this is a marked improvement, but also a continuation of our consistently excellent performance. Congratulations to all!

Our team fielded 15 competitors, a wonderful group of very talented and hard working students. Many of them are graduating this year, and we wish them well in their future endeavors, and look forward to welcoming the next cohort of competitors in the fall!
