NEW YORK - Evan Sennefelder and Andrew Stuart of Wallenpaupack Area High School are now the number one automotive team in the country.

After finishing first at the 2018 National Automotive Technology Competition in New York City, the newest top technicians in the United States surpassed 28 other teams from across the country, to receive their title as the best in the industry.

The WAHS students prizes include full tuition scholarships, gift certificates to Snap-on Tools and more. Having competed in the competition for several years now, often the WAHS students place first in the state, but this year marks the second year a team from WAHS has won the national competition. The first time a team from WAHS won the national competition was in 2015.

A story is pending in next week’s edition of The News Eagle.
