Spartronics Team 4915 competed in the first of two district event competitions this year last weekend at Auburn Mountainview High School, and the Bainbridge High team finished ranked in the competition at 23rd of 38 teams.

In the Pacific Northwest District, Spartronics Team 4915 are now ranked 58th of 155 teams.

The team’s new robot CHAOS was one of the few robots that could do what is called a Level 3 climb, noted Co-caption Chris Mentzer.

Mentzer said that despite many issues, CHAOS made several successful Level 3 climbs and at one point in the competition, Spartronics was ranked as high as sixth.

Spartronics competed in 12 matches, and CHAOS, like many of the robots during the competition, encountered a number of issues and team members had to make quick repairs and adjustments after nearly every one of the matches.

Spartronics made it to the quarterfinal matches, but lost two consecutive matches.

One of the team’s mentors, Riyadth Al-Kazilly, was nominated as a Woodie Flowers Finalist, the award for an outstanding mentor, and two of the Bainbridge student team members, Declan Freeman-Gleason and Cruz Strom, were nominated for the most prestigious individual honor in FIRST, the Dean’s List Award.

“The biggest takeaway from Auburn: We learned a lot and still had a ton fun,” Mentzer said.
