SALT LAKE CITY —  Five teams from Davis County high schools were among the 10 teams competing in the state Ford/AAA Student Auto Skills competition.

To earn a chance to participate, students had to take a written test and place in the top 20.

Students worked in two-person teams and had 90 minutes to diagnose and repair deliberately “bugged” identical Ford vehicles, then drive them across the finish line, according to a release.

The winning team from Riverton High will attend a national competition in Michigan in June.

Local teams are Jaxon Lay and Brycen Rackham of Syracuse High, who are coached by Wayne Burbank; Robert Rice and Justin Chhristensen of Layton High, coached by Corey Spencer; Ethan Jensen and Christian Matlock of Davis High, with coach Tom Housley; Taylor Gibson and Eric Natay of Bountiful High, with coach Erick Winkler; and Alex Velis and Logan Wilde of Northridge High, who are coached by Rodney Stevenson.

The competition was established to help train future auto technicians on advances in computer and electronic technology.
