Robotics teams at CCS stay busy at tournaments
Four Chase County Schools (CCS) students competed in a robotics tournament at Lincoln Northstar on Saturday, where they faced 31 other teams from across the state. The team of Brady Gittlein, Cade Francis, Rebeca Subia and Oyuky Perez-Gamboa represented CCS, and finished in the top half in the qualifying rounds.
In the finals, they finished fifth, after winning their quarterfinal round match. In the semi-finals, CCS fell to the team that ended up tournament champions. “It was a great learning day. Too bad this team doesn’t have another tournament to go to. I feel they’d do much better,” said Coach Kim Wilson. Other teams in Lincoln last weekend were Cross County, Lincoln Public Schools, Millard West, Battle Creek, Hershey, Ogallala, Waverly, Weeping Water, Grand Island, Crete and Omaha North Magnet.
