3/5/2013 8:47:00 AM Robotics team takes second again
The Windom Eagles Robotics team have gone from turning heads a couple of weeks ago in Bemidji to being a force with which to be reckoned.
For the third time in three meets, the first-year robotics team captured a second-place finish in the Dream !t Do !t Central Minnesota VEX Robotics Tournament in St. Cloud Saturday.
Once again, the team - comprised of Ryan Helmoski, Nicholas Wolter, Isaac Steele, Jackson Oltmans, Nate White Derek Kelsheimer and Ethan Clerc - was a runner-up to the Boss Botz, the same team against which Windom has finished second in its previous two competitions.
However, Windom came home with more than just a second-place finish. The team also placed second in the Programming Skills Challenge in which their robot moves without a driver for a 60-second period.
