Congratulations to the Robotics teams - On Saturday the teams traveled to Jenison where all four DeWitt teams competed with 44 teams in attendance. Team 1581B made up of Toby Kind, Matthew Craig and Kenny Rzeszutko were undefeated to start the day, but ended in 8th place and made it into the semi-finals before losing.
