North Shore VEX Tournament

On September 29th and 30th our team hosted this year's North Shore VEX Competition. On Friday we started setting up our cafeteria after school before the teams arrived that night for robot inspection and preparation for Saturdays competition.

On Saturday we started early before teams arrived to get everything else setup. We had 37 teams come down to compete. Our qualification match started and all three of our VEX teams were doing very well. We had a quick lunch break at the concession stands before starting back up with our matches. Team 359A came in first place. All of our teams made it to semifinals and team 359A and team 359D made it to the finals. In the finals it was now 359A against 359D. At the end, team 359A, 4142A, and 2437 became our tournament champions! Our two other teams did amazing as well! Thank you for everyone who came down to participate. Also thank you mentors, volunteers and students for helping us put on this competition!
