Woodberry Rubik's Cube Club Hosts Competition

Rubik’s Cube competitors from around the country came to Woodberry Forest Sunday for a tournament organized by Woodberry students.

The tournament featured both youth and professional competitors, including professionals who can solve a standard three-square by three-square cube in under ten seconds and who can solve seven-by-seven cubes.

The tournament, an official World Cube Association event, was organized by William Xie, a fifth former from Shanghai, China. Last fall William founded the Woodberry Forest School Rubik’s Cube Club. Several faculty members served as tournament judges, and student volunteers helped with tournament logistics.
