Senior School Robotics Whoa!Bots Team Earns an Impressive Finish
The Senior School Robotics team, named the Whoa!Bots, competed in the Southwestern Pennsylvania FIRST Tech Challenge on Saturday, January 13. In a year of extraordinary growth, the Whoa!Bots fell just short of winning the tournament, earning a remarkable second place finish in the Finalist Alliance out of the 21 teams that entered the competition.
Although we won the match by a large margin, the score doesn’t tell the whole story. Your girls stayed focused and played to the best of their ability in spite of the slow pace of play, and lack of experience on their opponents part. What I was most impressed with however, was how kind and helpful the girls were to their opponents who were struggling and getting very frustrated. The other wonderful thing that happened was that we gained a new player, Haley, to round out our team (thanks to Tatum!). We welcome Haley and look forward to her progress through the year!
Tatum - 38 Medalist Zoe - 43 Brianna - 46 Lexie - 50 Haley - played exhibition - played her first 6 holes and played remarkably well, beating all the other players in her group.
