VEX Robotics Teams Sweep Belfast Competition

On December 21st our three Robotics teams competed at the CABOCES VEX Qualifying Tournament at Belfast CSD and had an outstanding all-around performance! All three Wellsville teams advanced to the finals, finished 1-2-3 in the Skills Challenge, and swept the awards ceremony! All three of our teams qualified for the Northern New York State VRC Spin Up Championships in Syracuse, NY in March. What is most impressive is that 8 of our 12 members are brand new to the program and all three teams were able to overcome significant obstacles throughout the tournament. Our next tournament is Saturday, January 28th at Canaseraga CSD.
