At the second Edmonton Vex Qualifying Tournament, not only did team 210Y win the entire tournament, but they also won the Excellence Award, the Skills Award, and the Judges Award. That’s the maximum amount of awards a team can win in any given tournament! Also, teams 2088F and 2088Z placed second, qualifying all three West Mech teams for the US Open. We’re so proud of all our West Mech teams. Congrats to every team that attended the event!
