Robotics Team Victories

Congratulations to the Cougarbots!

In robotics competition, matches are played with an alliance team.  On Sunday the #1 ranked Cougarbots 8301D team chose their sister team 8301E as their alliance partner, and together went undefeated to win the Metro League Championship!

In addition, we won several other awards:

8301D won the Think Award for excellence in programming, and the Robot Skills Award for having the highest individual match score in the league

8301C won the Design Award for best documentation of the engineering design process

And perhaps best of all…

The Cougarbots Club was given the Sportsmanship Award for their great attitudes and willingness to help other less experienced teams.


Congratulations to Coach Northum and all of the Cougarbots!
