We spent a long day at Brentwood Academy on 11/2/19 competing in our first VEX Robotics tournament of this season. We were up against a lot of the best teams from central Tennessee and we did fairly well. After qualification rounds, three of our teams were in the top half of the tournament with five of our six teams able to make it to the elimination bracket.
Special Recognition goes out to team 5999Z who competed at their first ever VEX robotics tournament, shocked many teams, and qualified for the state tournament.
Team members: Shelby Burnett-Gunderson, Brianna Britford, Pheoebe Hewett, Morgan Kirkland, Izabellah Reifel, and Faith Sherer
Three students from Northeast High School’s robotics team competed in the VEX Robotics Competition at the TSA (Technology Student Association) National Conference in Washington D.C. from June 28th through July 2nd. They qualified to compete at this competition by winning VEX Robotics Excellence at the TN TSA State Conference this past April. The students performed well in this event, finishing 17th out of 48 teams from across the nation. The students who participated are Jonathan Hernandez, Nathan Maynard, and David Tonn. This concludes their 2018-2019 season and preparations have already started on the 2019-2020 VEX season “Tower Takeover”.
