Congratulations to the GHS Vex robotics team on placing 9th in their division at the US Open. Unfortunately, we lost in the round of 16 in a close match.  The students traveled to the Mid America Center in Council Bluffs Iowa to compete against teams from all across America. The members of the team are Mike Welch (driver), Ivan Zou (builder), Raunit Kohli (coder) and Sarah Vacca (documenter). It was a great way to end the season!
