CyberPatriot Team Makes it to National Competition
Congratulations are in order for the Vista Ridge CyberPatriot Team!
Our team (the MegaCyberWolves), seniors at Vista Ridge High School have worked hard to advance from a field of 1,638 teams to just one of twelve that has qualified for the Air Force Association’s CyberPatriot VIII National Cyber Defense Competition. The competition will take place in Baltimore Maryland, April 11 – 13, 2016.
There has been a CyberPatriot team at Vista Ridge for 5 years, thanks to Northrup Grumman and the Air Force Association. The initial year that the competition was open to high schools, Vista Ridge joined. That team took the number one spot in the Pikes Region. Each year we have grown and continued to have success, making it to state and then regional rounds.
This year our senior team, the MegaCyberWolves, placed first in the Southwest Region, and third overall nationally, guaranteeing them a spot at the national venue, Air Force Association’s CyberPatriot VIII National Cyber Defense Competition.
