CMS CyberPatriot Teams Dominate State Competition

Challenger Middle School 8th grade CyperPatriot teams worked hard to use their knowledge of researching and developing new things leading up to and during the state CPXIII competition.  The following two teams took first and third place in the competition:


C0D3R3D.2

Challenger Middle, 8th Grade
Placed 1st
  • Suyash Ojha
  • Hayden Smith
  • Hugh Nguyen
  • Daniel Hatfield
  • Camron Armstrong

Coach: Teri Mitchell
CP Mentor: James Morse
Registration Sponsor: National Space Club, Huntsville Chapter

C0D3R3D.2, or "CodeRed 2" has 2 team members, Suyash Ojha and Hayden Smith, that were on the original CodeRed from last year as junior members on that first-place team.  They began cometing in CyperPatriot as 6th graders.  Hugh Nguyen also competed last year as a seventh-grader on a different team, but was then recruited by C0D3R3D.2 to be their team's network specialist this year which he did to fidelity - scoring higher than any other team in the state on the sub-component.


Hypertext Assassins

Challenger Middle, 8th Grade
Placed 3rd
  • Kadence Hicklen
  • Rheanna O'Barr
  • Ty Chandrakasem
  • Cengizhan Cullu

Coach: Teri Mitchell
CP Mentor: James Morse
Registration Sponsor: National Space Club, Huntsville Chapter

The Hypertext Assassins set out to beat C0D3R3D.2 and improve their positioning with each round leading to the state round.  They were excited to be able to place in the state above 18 of the 21 teams in Alabama as the 3rd place winners.  They were able to achieve this despite two team members being in quarantine, one of which found out they had to quarantine a mere 20 hours before the competition.  Luckily, the team was able to send a cyber computer home to divide the work.


Both teams would like to thank the National Space Club, Huntsville Chapter for sponsoring this year's entrance fees, as well as Mr. Jim Morse of Huntsville High for sharing his expertise as their CyperPatriot Mentor.
