Brentwood Academy on Saturday hosted a statewide VEX Robotics Tournament for middle and high school students, as well as a VEX IQ Tournament for elementary and middle school teams.
A total of 42 high school and middle school teams from area schools competed to earn a spot at the state tournament next year. This year’s theme was “In the Twilight Zone,” and participants received prizes and awards for costumes.
