    the scores of the first and second place adults come out fine, but the third place is wrong, and also all the names show up as "abc" which i previously declared them as, i am unsure if i'm completely wrong on doing so, but i was unsure. Thanks

    Sorry, I forgot to ask this:
    Please edit your post and wrap your code with
    [code=java]
    <YOUR CODE HERE>
    [/code]
    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.

    all the names show up as "abc"
    Where are the values of the variables changed? Is the code that is supposed to change the values executed?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
