On Saturday, April 23rd, Greenville High School's VEX robotics team, Iron
Cowboys 4148A, concluded their season at the 2016 VEX World Championship held
in Louisville, KY. The Iron Cowboys made it all the way to the elimination
rounds of the world competition.
“The team worked very hard putting in 12 hour days tuning and
tweaking the robot’s setup, collecting data and play matches,” said Iron
Cowboys Coach, Colin Nobles. “Although
they did not make elimination rounds, they closed the season with a record of
91-32-0,” he said, “they worked so hard and have overcome a lot of obstacles.
I’m so proud of the students and I’m very excited to continue working with them
for next season,” said Nobles.
Although the team ended their World Championship run in the
elimination rounds, they had a very successful tournament season, earning seven
awards across five tournaments, including: the Create Award at the Garland Robotics Competition, the Excellence Award at the Jack E.
Singley Nothing But Net competition, the
Design Award and the Programming
Skills Award at the Greenville Nothing But Net League, a Tournament Championship and Teamwork Award at the North
