For the first time in our history all 3 MVHS Robotics teams will be attending the World Championships!
Our very own Team 569A will be defending their World Championship Title!
This past Saturday the NightHawk Robotics Club wrapped up their first ever league appearance. After
travelling to Hesperia 4 times for 30 qualifying matches and the playoffs, the results are in:
Programming Skills Champion – Our very own Team 569B
Amaze Award – Team 569B
Inspire Award – Our very own Team 569C
2 Tournament Finalist Awards – Team 569B and 569C
All 3 teams had a great day this past Saturday. Our very own Team 569A had their best showing to date
making it to the tournament semifinals and nearly beating the eventual tournament champions.
Team 569B and 569C who were teamed up together made it to the finals and were narrowly defeated in 3
matches in the best of 3 format. It was a great day and a strong showing with 3 fierce robots near the top of the leader board out of 52 teams who were in the league.
Some other highlights worth noting:
Last week NHRC was invited to a demo during the Mayor of Murrieta’s State of the City speech. The
Robotics Club and their accomplishments were mentioned 3-4 times during the Mayors speech.
For the first time in our history ALL 3 TEAMS have qualified to compete at this year’s World
Championships. Keep in mind there are over 7,300 teams registered worldwide and only 400 high school
spots are available to get into the world championships. It is an amazing honor just to be able to attend.
Team 569A are the reigning WORLD CHAMPS and will be defending their title this year from April 18th-20th at the Anaheim Convention Center.
Team 569C won the Los Angeles Regional Tournament qualifying them for World Championships.
Team 569B had the top Programming Skills score in the world as of December 15th and ended up 20th
in the world. The top 30 teams in the world qualify for World Championships.
