Team 5233M (Zach U., Ted S., Levent C., Vernon W., Jack W.) were selected by the #2 alliance and proceeded to upset the #1 seed in the State finals to become NE/IA State MS Robotics Champions for 2017-18.
This team has now qualified for the VEX World Championships in Louisville, KY in April.
This is the 1st official MS State Championship, as the previous title, won by Jay Goldapp’s team 3 years ago was not under the DC West Robotics name yet.
Team 8675A (Troy O., Jay G., Dillon S., Avery H.) were selected by the #1 alliance and proceeded to win a highly contested tournament. They officially became the NE/IA State Champions. This, I believe, is the 1st EVER state title for a DC West team.
This team also won the individual NE/IA State Championship in skills with a score of 202 (good enough to be 5th in the world).
This team also qualified for the VEX World Championships in KY and they will hope to come back with several World titles in April!
