Congratulations to our Thomas Starr King Middle School Robotics Team!!!

After a disastrous first round, the King Lions team picked their robot off the mat and battled back from the last place in the Freight Frenzy Challenge standings all the way up to 6th place during the qualifying round, ending up as the highest placing middle school in the competition and becoming one of the eight teams eligible for the semi-finals. Unfortunately, the match against the eventual champions did not go the way of the Lions, but they did end up in 5th place overall. Big thanks go out to the King’s robotics mentor-coaches, Mr. Piumarta and Mr. Page, and the parents and guardians of the competitors. The team looks forward to competing next year, growing the squad, and reaching new heights in next year’s FIRST Robotics Competitions
