4-8-2019 Robo Pirates Place in Top 12 at State Robotics Championship

This past Friday, the Lytle High School Robo Pirates - Marauders team competed in the State Robotics Championship in Austin. The team split their first two matches of the day losing the first match by 3 points but bouncing back and winning match 2 by 84 points. After coming up short in matches 3 and 4 the Robo Pirates pulled off a nailbiter by winning their final match by 1 point! The team advanced into the elimination rounds where their alliance was ultimately defeated in the semifinals to the eventual state champs. 
This team has consistently placed at the top of each tournament this year and can now claim to be one of the Top 12 teams in Texas for 1A-4A schools! I am so proud of the work that was put in by these students and their dedication. While we are disappointed that we didn't meet our ultimate goal of bringing the state champs trophy back to Lytle, we learned many valuable lessons along the way and have continued the tradition of success by getting to State in 3 of the last 4 years. 
Many thanks to all of our supporters, parents, and volunteers! Now we begin to work toward next season.
