NORWOOD, N.J.– Three top finishers from Norwood Cub Scout Pack 120 were headed to the district finals in Secaucus next month after Saturday night's annual Pinewood Derby.

First-place winner Kevin McLaughlin (average speed: 206.6 mph), will be joined at the April 2 event by Robert Ferrara, who finished second (avg. speed: 205.2 mph), and third-place finisher Anand Vaghasia (avg. speed: 205.1 mph).

Parents and sons in the annual derby at Holy Family School were handed a block of pinewood and four wheels -- and took it from there. They sanded and painted in detail, while adding a specified amount of weight.

Although speed determined the winners from each den, effort, skills, teamwork and creativity were all prized in the hours-long competition.

The winners by rank:

Tigers: 1st Place - Hudson Guzman

Tigers: 2nd Place - Patrick Wilson

Tigers: 3rd Place - Liam Volz

Wolf: 1st Place - Anand Vaghasia

Wolf: 2nd Place - Jared Liu

Wolf: 3rd Place - AJ Burke

Bears: 1st Place - Jeremiah Saad

Bears: 2nd Place - Jackson Mendoza

Bears: 3rd Place - Ryan Sullivan

Webelos 1: 1st Place - Kevin McLaughlin

Webelos 1: 2nd Place - Robert Ferrara

Webelos 1: 3rd Place - Charlie Cannold

Webelos 2: 1st Place - Eddie Sullivan

Webelos 2: 2nd Place - Sahaj G. Vaghasia

Webelos 2: 3rd Place - Zachary Ingledue

There are more than 60 registered scouts in the Pack, Cubmaster GC Vaghasia said.

They dined on pizza, fruit, cakes and snacks.
