Our Greenville Travis/Sixth Grade Robotics Teams had a great weekend!


Our Travis/Sixth Grade Robotics teams traveled to Richardson West Junior High School to compete in the final robotics event before state tournament and our teams had a very successful weekend. We had a total of 13 teams competing in this event.


Five of our G.E.A.R.S. GISD teams, 3148A, 3148J, 3148M, 3148N and 5148G qualified for the finals round by finishing in the top ten overall for the event.


The A Team (3148J) which consists of students Noah Davenport, Rhett Maner, Priscilla Quezadas and Brandon Lambe won first place overall in the team competition and will compete in the state competition on March 9. Team Pride (3148A) students Miles Wiggins, Ian Kowalczyk, Joseph Quezadas and Tegan Harmon finished in second place in the team competition.


We also received two additional awards; Skills and the Judges Award. The Skills Award went to team Cyclone students Noah Shafft, Kwynzarian Barrett, Colton Tice and Teejay Squire for receiving first place in the individual driving challenge and for programming. Hayden Taylor, Renee Mendoza, Hannah Maner and Marcus Mangus from team Narwall won the judges award for their interview with the judges and their team journal notebook.


As of today, we have two teams from Travis/Sixth Grade Center going to state competition on March 9; The A Team (Noah Davenport, Rhett Maner, Priscilla Quezadas and Brandon Lambe) and the Cyborgs (Kaden Waters, Reagan Goggins, George ALexander and Matthew Pennington) who qualified at an earlier tournament. Congratulations to all the teams, and good luck to all of the remaining teams as they prepare for the state tournament.
