SBHS Robotics Team Update
Our Robotics Team had a very successful season! We are excited to share that at the State Championships this past Saturday all 6 of our teams (teams 750- S,B,C,R,E,W) competed at the states tournament, 5 of which made to quarter finals, 2 to semifinals and one team (750 B) made it all the way to the final match qualifying them to the VRC Worlds championship to be held in Dallas from April 24th to 27th. The same team ranked first place in NJ with their top skills score ( 58th out of 20,000 - top 0.29% in the world)! The closest second team was very far behind. This feat double-qualified this team to the worlds! Congratulations to all of our teams on this wonderful season!
