Team 2420A C-Dogs are proud to announce their recent victory at the Vex IQ Nevada State Championship which took place in Las Vegas, NV on Saturday, Feb. 25.
This is the second state championship title acquired by the team and they could not be more thrilled.
The C- Dogs consists of two students, Cash James and Danard Petit, who competed in the Vex IQ Challenge Division which is a robotics competition for elementary and middle school students. Team 2420A C-Dogs was able to outshine the competition and take home the state championship title along with this year’s Excellence Award.
This is the team’s second consecutive state championship win with two undefeated seasons under their belt.
The team worked hard to prepare for the competition and their hard work paid off. They are looking forward to competing in the Vex IQ U.S. Open (invitation only) in February and the Vex Robotics World Championship in April.
Team 2420A C-Dogs would like to thank Coach Leo Silva, Part Owner of Engineering For Kids and Coach Of The Year, as well as the parents and supporters for all of their help and encouragement throughout this process. “Without them, their success would not have been possible,” said James when asked about his experience at this year’s competition.
The state of Nevada congratulates Team 2420A C-Dogs on their second state championship win and supports them as they gear up for the U.S. Open.
