GISD students perform well in recent robotics competitions



Four of the Sixth Grade Center teams made it to the elimination rounds, and one of those teams made it to the finals.

Team 3148G, made up of Neil Smith, Brett Ozarowski, Alyssa Martinez and Jordan Frimpter, reached the finals, where they lost to the tournament champions.

Team 3148B was comprised of Brandon LeBlanc, Zachary Freeman, Nathaniel Stutzman, Rosemary Johnson and Hannah Cowgill. This team also won the “Sponsors Award.” This award is given to a team the judges decide is deserving of special recognition. Judges consider a number of possible criteria for this award that may not fall under existing awards but deserve recognition.

Team 3148H advanced to the semifinals after a hard fought battle. Team 3148H members are Rodey Wiggins, Kenzie Gray, Ethan Mcgee and Dalton Sims. Team 3148D members are Trenton Burns, Javier Littlefield, Yeon Soo Jung and Pamela Ugalde.

“Two of our 10 teams received awards and the rest of the teams were in the pack,” Cyborgs Coach Joanne Jenkins said. “This was a great performance for the sixth graders first year to compete.”
