Every year, the biggest VEX competition in the world is held right in our state, on the island of Oahu. Teams from all over the world are invited to join, and we had the privilege of being one of the 104 teams in the competition.
Hilo Viking Robotics improved immensely. This year, we made it through the seeding matches, placing 13th out of 104th. Our score was 6 wins, 0 ties, 1 loss (6-0-1). Together with our alliance partners Honoka’a and Iolani High school, we made it to the semi-finals. All in all, we believe that we’ve improved not just in terms of making it farther, but as a team. Every member of the team contributed to our victory. Well done, my friends.
Last but not least, a BIG thank you to all of our sponsors for making everything possible, and to our mentors and advisors for supporting 110% us every step of the way. Mahalo!
