Bancroft's Upper School Robotics teams sustained their winning streak at the VEX Toss Up Regional Qualifier on Saturday, January 11th. All three teams—2442A, 2442C and 2442D—earned a spot in the Finals! Team 2442A, led by Alex M. with team members Victor L., George D., and Andrew T., were part of alliance that won the Tournament Championship Award. The team also won the Build Award. The Build Award is given to a team that has built a well-crafted and constructed robot that also shows a clear dedication to safety and attention to detail. Coach Elisa Heinricher was thrilled with the results and the team support. "Once again," she said, "the team enjoyed an enthusiastic parent audience." Headmaster Scott Reisinger called the Robodogs' victory "superb," and sent a message to Elisa, saying, "Congratulations to our gifted teams and to you." The Robodogs' next competition is on February 8th at Quinsigamond Community College.
