Masuk Robotics Team
Qualifys for CA Championships

Four teams prepare for final qualifier

A championship stadium like the one above awaits the qualifiers for the
2013 Vex Robotics High School World Championships in Anaheim, CA,


A single Masuk  Robotic team has secured a place at the 2013 Vex Robotics High School World Championships in Anaheim, CA, April 17 to 20. Masuk’s Vexy^2 team members were the first Masuk team to qualify this year and qualified outright by capturing the “Overall Grand Champion” award at the
Manchester, CT competition.

“It automatically qualifies us for a spot (at the CA Championships)” said
Masuk's Robotics Coordinator William McDonough. "We will be taking a minimum of 15 students to the world event in April."

This is the first year Masuk will be sending students to the competition. Vexy^2 team members are Adam Volman, Amelia Gouveia, Colin Dablain, Anton Kaminsky, Richie Infante, Neil McCarter, Kyle Granello, Gaius Roy, Orion Strickland and Chad Bauer.

Masuk’s
Voltron  and T-Vex teams,  So Vexxy It Hurts and Jawa Scrappers just missed qualifying recently at the Regional Vex Robotics Qualifier in Worcester, MA.

They
will all have one last chance to compete and qualify on Feb. 17 during the final qualifier, again in Manchester, CT, for championships in  Anaheim, CA. Mike Cercone is co-facilitator for the Masuk teams.
