Congratulations to the Junior and Senior Robotics Teams - On Sunday they traveled to Grandville for the Michigan State Championship and did a phenomenal job. The Seniors were so close to being the only undefeated team, but lost a very close final match to end qualification play in 7th place out of 48 teams from across the state! The Juniors had a string of bad luck to start the competition and were not able to make it into the tournament play. The seniors fought hard during tournament play, but were unable to make it out of the quarter-finals. They matches were so close that the seniors only lost by 2 points one match and 1 point the next match. Congratulations to both teams for making it to the state championships. This was a great feat and you should be very proud of yourselves.
