Robotics Team Hopeful for Return to State

The Robotics team hopes to have another successful season in 2022 – 2023, and they are looking to build on their state tournament appearance from last year. In order to do so, they will need to rely on contributions from experienced upperclassmen and high-upside newcomers. The leaders of this Robotics team include returning seniors Eli Youngblood and Hyun Gu Lee.

Another experienced leader, junior Andrew Davis, touched on his excitement for this year’s team, as well as the strengths that they hope to build on with the new freshman class.

“I feel I have been able to welcome the new members well and equally,” Davis said. “Communication with these new freshmen as well as the returning upperclassmen has been very strong. I am able to talk with them all the time in robotics, and we work very well together.”

Mr. Robert Michael, the head of the Robotics Team, also shared his outlook on the team this year, as well as some details about their competition. His optimism for this coming season with the upperclassmen returnees and the new but equally capable freshmen is sure to set the team off on a great start to their competitions.

“We have a good group of team members and a good group of returning kids, as well as a quality robot,” said Michael. “This year, every robot participates in the same competition called Powerplay, and the team is working hard to prepare for this event.”

Their first meet is on Saturday, December 17 in Drury Hall at Notre Dame Regional High School. All fans are welcome and encouraged to come out and support.
