St. Francis High School (SFHS) congratulates Team Brobot for advancing to the VEX Robotics State Championship with an impressive victory in the team’s first regional competition of the new school year! This past weekend the St. Francis High School Robotics Team, affectionately known as Team Brobot, had its first competition of the season at the VEX Robotics Competition in Calabasas.
Without skipping a beat after last year’s success at the World Championships, both Golden Knight robots entered by Team Brobot had an outstanding performance! Team 4800B, led by Sean O’Connor, Lenny Pieroni, and David Frost, advanced to the quarterfinals. Team 4800, led by Stephen Chavez, Jared Tadayon, and Michael Naginis battled their opponents to sudden death match victories in both the semifinals and final. After 12 hours and 80 grueling matches, Team Brobot proved victorious and finished in 1st place out of 40 teams! A special thanks to the SFHS Cheer & Song squad for a phenomenal send off at 7:00 a.m. Team Brobot’s hard work week after week certainly paid off this weekend with a great performance! Please congratulate the following students for their success:
