Over the weekend, you Cyberknights took part in our first ever semifinals for the National Youth Cyber Education Program Cyberpatriot. The competition was fierce for the top Gold tier team only scoring 141 points out of a possible 300. Your Cyberknights rocked a solid 90 points placing 2nd for Michigan teams, beating our county competitor Gull Lake. Nationally, they ranked 33rd out of 184 teams.

The final scores are not set as we are awaiting the scoring of another potential 100 points. However, given the fact they have only been practicing an hour or two a week since September, with a team of only four competitors, instead of the standard 6, and going against teams that have potentially been doing this since Middle school, everyone should be proud of what your Cyberknights have been able to achieve in such a short time.

Registration for Cyberpatriot 15 starts this April with the first exhibition round starting in May. If you like solving challenging puzzles, protecting yourself from cyber criminals, and exploring one of the fastest growing high demand job fields, you may want to consider joining the Cybersecurity club meeting after school Tuesdays and Thursdays in M1. Or sign up for the Information Technology (IT) CTE course right here at Loy Norrix.
