CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Two New Hampshire high school students have shown they’re among the best of the best in a national auto tech competition.

Aaron White and Sheamus Powers of Portsmouth High School placed seventh overall at the National Auto Tech Championship in New York City. They proved to among the most efficient at figuring out a “bug” or problem set up in various cars and trucks, and then quickly correcting it.

Their teacher ran them through multiple practice written exams and challenged them to “chase the bugs” under the hood on various vehicles.
