National Cyber League (NCL) is a multi-stage event, starting with preseason, then individual competitions, and ending with a postseason team game.
The competition was on an individual basis, with the season being made up of two different 8-hour challenges. Multiple WCTC students made the top 10% in Game 1, Game 2, or in both challenges.
This year was especially challenging for several of the students, as the 8 hour competition on the 19th followed directly on the heels of the 4-5 hours of the Midwest CCDC Invitational!
The postseason was the first time WCTC’s Cybersecurity Competition Team was able to simultaneously field TWO teams!
