Design, build and program a robot "dragster" to race down a narrow lane and accurately stop when it "sees" the finish line??! What kind of impossible challenge is that? One that the Robotics students of Camas High, Hayes Freedom High and Liberty MS gladly accepted! The students competed with their Dragsters, SumoBots and Line Racers at the Fifth Annual South Sound STEM Robotics Invite in Olympia last Monday. This was the first time for any of the Camas schools to attend, and it was amazing! Lots of learning, teamwork and wins! Out of 10 high school teams competing, Camas students took home many of the awards! The top 2 finishers of each event were awarded a plaque:
Dragster, 1st: Alex Wolfe (driver) – CHS
Dragster, 2nd: Austin Schmunk, Tyler Allen – Hayes Freedom
Line Racer, 1st: Ian Pinch, Roberto Palma, Nathaniel Maszak – Liberty
Line Racer, 2nd: Michael Boyle, Nathan Chilian (builders), Lacy Dunlop (driver) - CHS
SumoBot, 1st: Kris Cocks, Ryan Wessel – CHS
The high school with the best overall team score was CHS, and was
awarded a plaque as well! Hayes Freedom placed 5th overall and Liberty placed 6th overall.
Jen Lewis and Hannah Gianan won the 4A State Tennis Doubles Championship Saturday, defeating Union for the third time in post-season tournament finals this season. Esther Kwon took fifth in the State Singles competition to secure a third place Papermaker finish at State.
Our track team had a PHENOMENAL weekend at the State Meet at Mt. Tahoma! Our ladies finished 2nd overall in the State 4A Championships behind Federal Way by only 24 points! Our boys ended up 19th overall. Camas set 1 national record, 2 state records, and 5 school records and 16 medals this weekend!
