Robotics team shines at weekend competition

Both Duchesne Academy robotics teams, 1881A and 1881B, competed on Saturday, February 5, at the Western Iowa VEX tournament. The teams had their best finishes ever after the qualifying rounds, placing 5th (1881A) and 6th (1881B) among a pool of 37 teams from Nebraska, Iowa, and Missouri. These top finishes earned each team a spot as Alliance Captains going into the elimination rounds.  
Congratulations to team members Maggie Kohout, Emily Righter, Grace Updike, Sasha Willson, Lauren Gilner, Claire Jeffries, Corinne Mansour, and Grace Thayer. 
Both teams are back in action in two weeks at D.C. West Tournament and 1881B continue to prepare for the U.S. Open tournament in April.
