Press release from Red Bank Regional High School 

In a few weeks, Red Bank Regional High School‘s Team Maroon will be hardening defenses and battling stealth cyber attacks to claim the trophy in the Air Force Association’s (AFA) prestigious CyperPatriot National Finals competition on April 10-12.

The six-man team consisting of captain Kyle Neary, Bobby Villaluz, Young Chen, Andrew Noglows, Jack Ferrone and Andrew Costa will travel with their coaches — RBR Academy of Information Technology (AOIT) teachers Mandy Galante and Jeremy Milonas — to Baltimore, MD, where they will be competing among the top 12 teams in the country.

This represents the third visit to the National Competition in six years for an RBR team. They won the National championship in the first year of the competition’s opening to public high schools, and last year finished in a close race to fourth place.

The teams clinched the State Championship in late February with an amazing showing by three RBR teams (Maroon, Gray and White); sweeping the state championship by coming in first, second and third. Those teams then competed in the Northeast Regionals against the top teams from Vermont, Maine, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New York and Connecticut, where Team Maroon won First Place. More importantly, their score in that round was the seventh highest of all teams nationwide, placing them in the elite top 12 teams, and securing their invitation to the Nationals competition.

At a time when the press is bemoaning the loss of high tech jobs from the Garden State, New Jersey schools — recognized among the best in the country — are building the bench to provide the “cyber patriot warriors” that will defend and protect the United States from cyber crime and terrorism.

This reality will be on display March 11 to 13 in Washington D.C., when New Jersey will be the only state represented in all three divisions of the prestigious Air Force Association’s CyberPatriot’s National Youth Cyber Defense Competition.

Team Alpha from NWS Earle placed second in the All Service Division (Cadets), in a competition that began with over 1000 teams.
