An 8th Grade Central VEX Robotics team earned a tournament championship in Claremore on Saturday, December 10, 2022. Co-captains David Proctor and Colin Hall led fellow team members Harper Williams, Ryan Waddell, and Ian Wilson to victory.
They started at 7:30 a.m., played 11 qualifying matches, and made it to the semi-finals. They were then undefeated through the 5-round single-elimination bracket to become tournament champions. This year's game is Spin Up.
Congratulations to the hard-working students and sponsor Lolly Williams. Central Middle School has been a Distinguished School in Project Lead the Way's Gateway to Technology program since 2018 and has fielded VEX Robotics teams, and hosted tournaments, for several years.
