Grandville Hosts West Michigan Regional VEX Championship

Yesterday, Grandville High School hosted the 2017 West Michigan Regional VEX Championship.  The top 48 High School and Middle School VEX Robotics teams from Districts in Western Michigan came together to compete for the opportunity to advance to the State VEX Robotics Championship.  (The State Championship will be held on Sunday, February 19, at Michigan State University.)

Herman Miller and X-Rite have been long-time sponsors of robotics teams in West Michigan, and both organizations provided judges for yesterday’s Championship.  Many of these school teams receive their primary support from organizations like Grand Rapids Junior Robotics, Hudsonville Robotics, Michiana Youth Robotics,  Caledonia Robotics, and Jension Robotics.

WOOD TV8 covered the event, and they have an excellent set of photos from the Championship on their website.

Tournament results are below – the twelve High School teams and ten Middle School awards that advance to the State Championship are marked with an asterisk.

VEX Robotics is the largest and fastest growing High School and Middle School competition in the world, with more than 16,000 teams in 40 countries. Learn more about the 2016-2017 VEX Robotics Challenge, Starstruck, by clicking here.
