Parkwood Robotics Team Wins County Championship

Some members of the robotics team during the competition.

On Saturday, March 18th, the 2nd annual Union County Robotics tournament was held at Weddington Middle School. Eight teams from Union County Public Schools competed. The Parkwood Middle Bearbots took home the title of County Champions. This trophy will be placed in the trophy case by the front doors.

The Bearbots team members that competed were Robert Fisher, Ron Geerhing, and Eann Lawing. The team stayed after school most Tuesdays to practice running the robots and the programs.

Robert Fisher stated, “ I thought it was cool that they had the programming set up for the courses. Competition day was packed full of action. You got to see what the other teams did that maybe you had not thought about for your team. When we were awarded the trophy, I felt like we earned it!”

Congratulations to everyone that competed.
Great job guys!
