Robotics Team Awarded Gracious Professionalism Award At Westtown Competition
Team 5181, La Salle Robotics, competed in their second regional district event at the Westtown School the weekend of April 2nd.
The La Salle College High School Robotics Team - Team 5181 - competed in their second regional district event at the Westtown School. After competing in 12 matches, they ended the qualification round ranked 14 of 37 teams. The top 8 teams then choose two alliance team members, and Team 5181 graciously accepted an invitation to be a member of the 4th alliance. Unfortunately, the alliance was eliminated in the quarterfinals.
The team was awarded the Gracious Professionalism Award which is sponsored by Johnson & Johnson. This award celebrates outstanding demonstration of FIRST core values such as continuous Gracious Professionalism (willingness to help other teams) and working together both on and off the playing field.
While announcing the award at the event, the judges referenced the ability of the entire team to work as a unit together. Efforts specifically recognized by judges included the efforts of seniors Mark Bense and Connor Devitt as well as freshman Alex Fang to help reprogram a competitors robot. The team would like to thank all mentors and sponsors for their support this season.
