Hillsboro bots place in top 10 at Cheney tournament

HILLSBORO – Hillsboro TSA robotics students hit the arena Saturday at the Cheney Cardinal Vexcellence tournament. Sawyer Hall of Quiet Squishing Noises was in the Top 10 at 7th place and Josh Siebert of team Doth followed in 8th. Lyle Fickes, team Arrogan 90 for Hillsboro, ranked 15th at the tournament.

All of the teams finished in the quarterfinals.

Robotics instructor Creigh Bell said he was proud of his teams for taking part in the tournament. The highlight he said was, “The energy and glow of the students as they compete and view all the different robot designs.”

With no other tournaments on schedule for this season, Bell said his students will continue to refine their skills and their bots during TSA time.

Bell said community members can show their support for the TSA students by simply engaging and asking questions of youth who choose to go above and beyond classroom requirements.
