This past Saturday Hazel Glen College hosted the first VEX In The Zone tournament of the year. We had 21 teams travel from across Victoria testing their robot skills on the field. Teams played a total of 8 matches leading up to the finals. At the end of qualifying only 1 team stood undefeated, St Mary’s Coptic Orthodox College. St Mary’s, team 3048A chose team 89999A and team 7479B to be their alliance partners for the finals. The three teams worked their way through the quarter and semi finals undefeated. The final match was a hard battle, but the St Mary’s alliance came through victorious winning the tournament.
A special mention needs to go out to the Highvale D team. This all girls team had the most exceptional engineering notebook with a very well documented design process. The girls took home the Autodesk Design award.
We need to send a very special thanks to all of our volunteers, without them we would have been unable to run such a great event.
This tournament was sponsored by Autodesk Education, Creature Technologies and DATTA Victoria.
