Busy Season for Teams

Team 4764 – Memphis MechWarriors (Cloud 901)

The MechWarriors competed in the Central Illinois and Smoky Mountain Regional.

The Team made the biggest splash on local media with appearances on TV, Radio and Print media to spread FIRST (many of which were posted to this blog)!

They also were the only Memphis team to submit a FIRST Parody Contest Video.

Team 5002 – Dragons (Collierville HS)

The Dragons competed in the Rock City Regional and Smoky Mountain Regional. At both events they were the Runner Up for the Safety Award and they won the Team Spirit Award at Rock City.

Also Sean Burke was named as a Dean’s List Finalist at Rock City as well.

Team 5045 – SpartaBot (White Station HS)

The SpartaBots competed at the Rocket City Regional and Bayou Regional and were chosen for an alliance at both events. Each time they got to the semi-final matches. This makes them the highest ranked team in Memphis! Good going team!

They are also going to the World Championships in Houston in April.

Team 7313 – SBA Eaglebots (Saint Benedict at Auburndale)

The SBA Eaglebots were in their rookie year and competed in the Rocket City Regional.
