SOA moves up in world standings, posts record programming score

As of February 17, the highest programming score in the world among VEX IQ middle schools teams is 23, and it’s owned by … Synonyms of Awesome! That’s right. After many, many, many tries at the New Community School tournament, we got the 23 we were looking for. That, combined with a 25 in driver skills, was enough to push us up in the world standings to 4th place. We’ll be looking to build upon that score for States on March 2, and hopefully for Worlds in April. It won’t be easy competing for the top spot (currently held by our friends across the James River, Soaring Eagles) but we’re up for the challenge.
