This year’s VEX tournament was hosted by C.O.R.E.  at Waukesha West High School on November 3rd and 4th. Each team competed in five qualifying rounds to determine rank. The top eight teams then went on to choose two alliance partners for elimination rounds. The tournament is set up similar to FIRST’s to prepare students for participating on a FIRST team in high school. Each team created a robot for this years competition: Sack Attack.


There are a total of ninety-eight (98) Sacks and four (4) Bonus Sacks available as Scoring Objects in the game. Most Scoring Objects begin in designated locations on the field, while some are available to be loaded prior or during the Match. Each Robot (smaller than 18”x18”x18” to start) begins a match on one of their Alliance Starting Tiles. There are ten (10) scoring areas, five (5) of each color, of varying heights which teams can Score Sacks or Bonus Sacks in. Alliances earn a bonus for having the most Robots of their own color touching their Alliance Starting Tiles at the end of the Match. A bonus is awarded to the Alliance that has the most total points at the end of the Autonomous Period.
