West Mesa Duo Finishes Second in State Auto Competition

The team nearly qualified for the national championship round.

West Mesa's Clayton Lucero and Donovan Olvera participated in the Ford/AAA Auto Skills competition.

The West Mesa High School duo of Clayton Lucero and Donovan Olvera finished second in the state in the Ford/AAA Auto Skills Hands-on Competition.

Lucero and Olvera competed against nine other teams from around New Mexico for the right to travel to the national competition. After scoring high on a written exam, the teams participated in a hands-on project that challenged them to diagnose and fix “bugged” new Ford vehicles as quickly as possible.

Their instructor Scott McLeod said they were one of only three teams that were able to get their cars started.

McLeod gave credit to the APS Career Technical Education Office for supporting the students with tools, instruction and funding.
