VEX Robotics Conquers State and Moves to Worlds

March 15, 2023

Two freshman members of VEX robotics team competed in the Wisconsin state championship at the Resch Expo in Green Bay on March 11, won the Amaze Award, and are slated to participate in the VEX robotics world championships. The world championships are being held in Dallas on April 25-27.

Team 6219B consisting of Jack DeMenter and Jack Henry won the Amaze Award for building a consistently high-scoring, solid mechanical design and effectively coded robot.

“We placed 12th overall, and first in skills,” Jack Dementer said. A total of five teams competed for NHS in the Wisconsin state championship over the weekend — the largest group of Neenah VEX to ever compete at state.

Senior Joshua Waite has been a member of the VEX Robotics team for four years and celebrates his team’s success in competing at the state championship this year: “This is the first time in the four years that I’ve been doing this that we actually made it to state,” he says with a smile “I’m just happy that we finally made it.”

    Great to see a wide variety of clubs and sports succeeding at our school. Hopefully, they can continue to succeed at their next competition in Dallas. I also hope that this success helps set precedent for other successes and that Neenah continues to have a wide range of successful activities.

    This is a very impressive win for Neenah and definitely a club not talked about enough.

    I’m proud of NHS for succeeding in many different areas of extracurricular! I am also happy to see Jack Henry place first for skills. He was my freshman this year for LAUNCH and he deserves this win!

    It’s great to hear involvement in the VEX robotics team is at an all time high! I hope this trend continues for all clubs at Neenah High School. Congratulations to Dementer and Henry!
