Belding VEX / Robroy Enclosures HS/MS Qualifier
This was a 48 team blended event where both high school and middle school teams compete in the same tournament. Most HS teams are more advanced but you would be surprised how well the MS teams do.
MS Team 8860D – The Flock won the MS Excellence Award – the top award at a Vex event.
Hudsonville HS team 8031E – 01010001 [binary for Q] was a tournament champion.
These two teams are now on their way to the state tournament at MSU on February 19, 2017. Hudsonville now has six teams qualified.
HS team 6715B earned the design award and they set another state skills record at 66 points. This places them 115th in the world out of over 4,100 skills ranked teams. MS team 8153D – Cortexed also earned the design award.
Since this event was so large and only 24 teams get to compete in the elimination rounds, the Belding group also hosted a “toilet bowl” (similar to Gus Macker). Hudsonville team 8153D – Cortexed won the coveted title. This is our second in our three year history.
Special thanks to our friends at Belding for hosting a great event.
