Current World Standings- Foothill Jumps into 1st Place

After attending the South Bay Tournament in Torrance on November 4, 2017, Foothill High School Team B jumps into the 1st place position in the world with a high score of 178 in VEX programming skills. Individual teams participate in this portion of the VEX competition by trying to score as many points as possible in one minute of autonomous programming and one minute of driving scores. The top 50 teams from around the world automatically receive an invitation to the World Championship tournament in April. Beckman Team B is currently in 13th place with their score of 132 from the October Poway tournament. Each tournament, teams try to beat their high score and TUSD teams are clearly participating at a world-class level. This season is proving to be even more remarkable than the last!

Two of Orchard Hill's teams (A & B) competed in Chula Vista on November 11, 2017. Team B scored a total of 81 points in the tournament skills competition, inching closer every tournament to the top 50 in the world.
