Hackley School hosts and performs well in Middle School Sumo Robotics Tournament
Five schools (Hackley, GCDS, RCDS, St Luke’s and Long Ridge School) participated in a Lego Robotics tournament at Hackley’s Performing Arts Center on Saturday, November 23 from 10 am to 1 pm.
Sixty-nine students competed with 41 robots, where each robot had to try and push or flip their opponent out of the battle zone. Hackley’s team of 14 students performed well in the tournament, with Jake N. and Bode C. winning the autonomous competition and the top 4 teams in the competition were all from Hackley. Upper school students Sam Perlman, Isabella Barrett, Sophia Ribeiro and Elizabeth Hetzel volunteered as referees during the tournament. It was a successful event and the team looks forward to future competitions in 2020.
