BHS Spartronics take second at district event

The Bainbridge High School robotics team had another great showing at their second competitive event, the district robotics competition at Shorewood High School in Shoreline.

“The district competition was a huge success, as we placed second out of 33 teams,” said BHS freshman and Spartronics spokeswoman Clio Batali. “Additionally, we won the ‘Rookie Inspiration Award,’ which recognizes first year teams that have exceptionally spread the ideals of STEM - science, technology, engineering, and math - throughout their community.”

The Spartronics are currently listed as seventh out of 153 teams, with 115 team points, in the Pacific Northwest District by the national First Robotics Competition ranking.

“Due to our achievements at this district competition, we have now qualified for the Pacific Northwest District Championship in Portland, Oregon.” Batali said. “Success there would then lead to our team’s participation in the National Championship in St. Louis, Missouri.”

The Pacific Northwest First Robotics regional championship takes place this weekend at Memorial Coliseum in Portland.
