There were 40 teams competing from across the state including all 6 Pinkerton Vex teams. 4 of Pinkerton’s teams made it through the 78 qualifying matches with Team Driven- 241D, the 2nd place finisher and the A-Team – 241A the 10th place becoming an alliance throughout the quarter, semi, and finals round. In the one-and-done event finals, the teams have to be ready. Driven and A-Team made it to the final match, beating the #1 Trinity team, and #3 Kennett team in the last match by 1 point. This is the 3rd competition so far this year and Pinkerton teams have won awards or tournament champions in all 3.
