The Woodlawn High Robotics Team, Panthrobotics, competed at the Bayou Regional in New Orleans this past weekend. After spending the first day of the competition ranked fifth or higher, their robot, Chaos, ended the second day of Qualification Matches with a 5-3 record and ranked 21 out of sixty teams overall. They were selected by the eighth ranked alliance to play in the Quarterfinals but lost in a two and out battle against the first ranked alliance.

The drive-team, made up of Brennan Burleigh, Alisa Webb, Grayson Kring, Nick Nienaber, and drive-coach Jason Lejeune were complimented by many teams because of their strategic analysis and ability to score high-point games even against strong opponents. Also on the field was teacher and coach, Mr. Eiland who was asked to act as the Emcee for the entire event.

While the team is done for the season, they’ve already been invited to participate in an upcoming Robotics Day at the State Capital and will continue to work on improving their skills for next year.
