From Mrs. Josie Collier, Engineering:

Yesterday on a bitter cold, icy Saturday morning 12 jittery Jeeps joined me to participate in our first VEX Robotics Competition. Our four South Webster teams arrived at the competition to face 25 other teams from West Virginia and Ohio - most teams more experienced in VEX competitions and many who have qualified for State and World Rankings. This 7 hours of competition required determination, teamwork, STEM skills, and problem solving until the bitter end. Throughout the competition, parts were broken, repairs made, programs rewritten, but our students rose to the challenges! Each of the 29 teams competed initially in 5 qualifying matches to determine which teams would move on to the final rounds. All four of our teams qualified for quarter finals, with one of our teams placing in the top 8 positions (which is where most teams strive to be at the end of qualifying rounds). We fought a tough battle demonstrating excellent sportsmanship, perseverance, knowledge, and teamwork against some outstanding teams. Unfortunately, we didn’t advance to semi-finals, but we learned from our mistakes and came home proud of our performances and excited to compete again next year!

Well that is the news Jeep Nation. In the next few days we will have a story about our Jr. High Volleyball team and their collection of coats for the less fortunate. Until then stay warm and as always…GO JEEPS!
