February 3, the St. Patrick School Robotics teams competed in the Viking
The 5th grade team
finished First out of 27 teams and qualified for the state tournament in
Indianapolis on March 10. The Teamwork Champion Award was awarded to 5th
grade team members. Team members are: Dylan Dixon, Quinn Fleming, Nick
Foust, Hayden Matthys, Bryton Oliver, Alexandria Sierra, and Alex Sim.
Champion Award qualifies the team for the Indiana VEX Robotics State
Championship at Lucas Oil Stadium on March 10.
The 6th Grade
Robotics Team won First Place Teamwork Champion Award at the Nativity
Ringmaster Scrimmage. However, the Nativity competition did not have enough
teams present to meet the requirements as a qualifying tournament for state
acceptance. Had more teams been competing, the 6th grade team would likely
also be going to state.
6th grade team
members are: Owen Cha, Melissa Cook, Gabriella Gottschlich, Jackson Madej,
Jonathan Pejic, Peighton Metcalf, and Payton Whalen.
These results are
incredible for a program that is just starting at school.
thanks must go to Mrs. Kalita for taking the extra time to start this
program, she has said that it is truly the dedication of the students, along
with their drive and motivation to be successful in this area, that has
brought about these results.
Thanks to Mrs.
Kalita, also Mr. Cook and Mrs. Foust, but especially the students who have
again made the school proud.
