On Saturday, February 2nd and Sunday, February 3rd, Team B of the Saint John’s Prep VEX Robotics Team went to state! The team members that competed were Martin Nelson, Lucy Cheeley, Sam Craft, Kai Martinson, Tori Grandy, and Sophia Kapoor. The team was led by their coaches, Steve Larson and Glen Holt.

The team had previously won a competition at Apollo High School which secured their spot at state. At the state competition, the team started off great with an impressive result of 27th place. There was a total of 64 teams that also qualified for state. Unfortunately, as the competition continued, the team lost an imperative rematch, leading them to finish the tournament in 38th place.

When I asked freshman Lucy Cheeley about her experience, she said, “Going to state was an exciting experience. I think our team did really well, with our robot preforming as planned throughout the day.”

This is the second year that the robotics team has competed. Despite the team consisting only of freshmen and middle schoolers, they performed very well against their senior competitors. Even after finishing off a successful season, the Robotics Team is still working hard for next year’s competition.
