The Bainbridge High School first ever robotics club celebrated their initial round of competition by securing a spot at the FIRST Robotics regional event in April.

The team placed sixth out of 32 teams at their debut competition recently at Glacier Peak, and took home the Rookie All-Around Award which locked up their guaranteed regional seat.

“Our team did really well,” said Enrique Chee, BHS physics teacher and coach of the robotics team. “Better than I would have expected. We are currently in tenth place out of 100 teams.”

The rookie roboticists even managed to make it to the semi-finals in their first competition, though they did not advance to the finals.

The team’s next challenge will come at Shorewood High School during the 2014 Pacific Northwest Shorewood District Event on Friday, March 21. The competition will be streamed live at www.firstwa.org.
