ALL SAINTS WINS 1ST PLACE AT REGION V ROBOTICS COMPETITION!!!!

On Saturday, January 23, All Saints had two teams of eighth graders compete in this year’s TCEA Region V Robotics competition. Will Edwardson, Grace LeDuc, and Rais Momin placed fourth overall out of 27 teams. The team consisting of Jackson Cox, Emma Fears, and Greta Gideon placed first overall, and they will advance to compete against the other best teams in the state later in the semester!

Both teams ran into some surprises regarding the competition that they were unaware of until about an hour before competing, but they were able to use their programming skills and know-how to modify their programs over the course of the day to ultimately register their very impressive scores! Needless to say, this made for the most exciting robotics competition ever. Both teams have worked very hard over the last several months, and we are all so proud of what they were able to accomplish!!!
