South Haven Students Compete in Robotics Competition

Robotics competitors Hunter and JonahSouth Haven attended their very first robotics scrimmage on Jan. 10th in Wichita.  We placed 27th in the rankings.  The boys quickly learned that strategy\ies with your alliance teammates are a key factor.  They also made a list of changes that they want to make on their robot.  Their next competition is January 27th in Derby.  They did really well considering they competed against teams that have been at this for a couple of years.  Good job Jonah, Hunter, and Davin.
