Grand Haven scored 446 points, and earned medals in four of the 23 events.
The highlight was a first-place finish in the Towers competition by Thomas Draper and Noah Van Abbema.
Grand Haven added a pair of second-place finishes. Nolan Ruble and Van Abbema placed second in Helicopters while John Richardson and Trent Stegink took second in Remote Sensing.
First place overall went to Troy High School from Fullerton, California, which received 172 points (the team with the fewest points wins).
Sixty middle school teams from around the country competed in Division B, and 60 high school teams competed in Division C.
The Grand Haven team earned a trip to the national tournament by finishing second at the state tournament in April.
Head coach Mike Reed said the Bucs’ success would not have been possible without the outstanding support offered by the school and the community.
“The support is always fantastic,” Reed said.
In addition to monetary donations, organizations also donated items for the team to trade during swap meets with other teams.
