Robotics Owls Compete at SBA
Three Owl robotics squads competed in the VEX Robotics Competition at St. Benedict at Auburndale Saturday, January 28.
An alliance of eighth graders Ike Emmert and Walker Shirley and seventh grader Mustafa Rehan fought their way to second place while the team of eighth graders Hudson Mattern, Darrian Williams, and seventh grader Joseph Zhao placed third.
“They competed against high school teams and handled themselves brilliantly against the older competition!” Science Instructor Garrett Smithson said.
The Upper School team of freshmen Bill Chiang, Liam McCarver, Tucker Melcher, Aadil Omer, and Ashwin Subramaniam earned an Excellence Award for their work in robotics.
