Out of 32 teams, Catawba County Schools First Robotics team at Saint Stephens High School finished 3rd overall in last week’s competition.  Our team finished ahead of many teams that have been competing in this event for more than 15 years. For the weekend our team finished 9-3 having the highest ranking rookie team for the entire competition. As a result of our efforts, we were awarded the All Star Rookie Award which qualifies us for the First Robotics State Championships. Catawba County Schools and Career Technical Education are proud of these students who came together as a team at the right moment.  Our Saint Stephens First Robotics Marketing team will be putting together more media to use in our fundraising campaign.  Any community support for this awesome group of students would be greatly appreciated.
