The Grandville High School Robodawgs, winners of last year’s West Michigan Regional Championship and defending State Champions, roll into this year’s West Michigan Regional Championship prepared to win it all again.

The RoboDawgs have never  played as well as they have this season.  Losing only one Tournament in the last twelve months, the RoboDawgs have been almost perfect.  There are currently two RoboDawg teams among the top 50 High School VEX teams in the world.  Six RoboDawg teams currently rank in the top 150 teams in the world.
