Memphite’s team, the Supreme Squad, came in 3rd place overall out of 13 robotics teams at the competition yesterday. He also got a special recognition from his coach for being a well-rounded and helpful teammate to help them rank third.
These accomplishments are gearing them for the next step. If their teams continue to succeed at the next local and regional competitions, they’ll likely qualify for Vex Robotics World Championship in Kentucky in April 2020.
Selah’s team, the Thunder Kids, won the Excellence Award and came in 4th place overall out of 13 robotics teams at the competition yesterday. She also got a special recognition from her coach for being the lead programmer on her team and improving in her confidence and driving skills since last year.
Selah and her team participated in Worlds last time (April 2019) and they competed against teams from Indiana, Kentucky to China and Liberia. We will keep you posted on their progress towards Worlds this year.
