Robotics Has Strong Showing in First Competition of 2023 Season
Bellarmine's Robotics team, Team 360, competed their first competition of the 2023 season in Oregon this past weekend.
The team performed exceptionally well through the first half of the competition qualification matches, ranked 1st. After the sixth match they experienced a major mechanical issue which took time to resolve. The team persevered through the remaining matches, ending qualifications ranked 16th. In the playoffs, with partners from Team 6443 AEMBOT from Hillsboro and 2811 StormBots from Vancouver, they advanced to the semi-finals. Throughout all the ups and downs of the weekend Team 360 stayed united and showed incredible Gracious Professionalism.
Team 360 won the Judges’ Award for their impact in their school, FIRST community, robot performance and team dynamics.
Additionally, two of their amazing students were judged for Dean’s List, Julia Shimshock B’24 and Rydar Jennings B’24. Congratulations to Julia Shimshock on being named 1 of 16 District Championship Dean’s List Semi-Finalist. She will compete for the PNW District Finalist in early April at the PNW District Championships in Cheney.
Lastly, they want to thank their teammates for their efforts and all the parents, mentors, and alumni who came out to support the team. If you would like to watch them compete, they invite you to see them Sammamish High School March 25th and 26th.
