TA Robotics Team Competes in NH

Five of TA’s VEX Robotics teams competed on Saturday at Pinkerton Academy in the “Turkey Day Classic” event. It was a good day for 4886, with team 4886T “Complete Signal Loss,” (Tate Whiteberg, Alex Holzer, and Carter Banks) earning 3rd place in the qualifying rounds before a tough defeat by three points in the semifinal rounds.

Two of TA’s teams were competing for the first time ever–and all for the first time this season. All players came out of the Pinkerton with great ideas for their next competition this weekend and will no doubt be working hard to modify their robot designs for success in this year’s “Tower Takeover” competition.
