ROBOTICS TAKES ON WORLDS!
Ian Nelson, Dante Sweis, Peter Wang, Kyle Zahn, and Owen Zahn of team 986A competed in the VEX Robotics World Championships this weekend and finished the tournament with an overall record of 6-4 and won the Create Award for their division. The VEX Robotics World Championships is a tournament that consists of over 800 teams from more than 50 countries competing in the game Spin Up (robot frisbee golf) to try and claim the title of World Champs. There were 10 divisions of 80 teams and our team won one of 10 awards earned per division. The Create Award is presented to a team whose robot design incorporates a creative engineering solution to the design challenges of this season's game. Our students competed to the best of their abilities and displayed humility in victory and were gracious in defeat. The students worked incredibly hard to achieve their goals and represented our Lord and Savior well at this event. Congrats to team 986A on a wonderful season!
