  • Rams Robotics Team Qualifies for State Tournament

    The Robotics team Senior members competed in the Kalahari Classic Regional Championship this weekend. This is one of the largest regionals in the U.S. Our teams were ranked 2nd, 18th, 38th, and 60th out of 92 teams after qualifications matches. Team 1344A was one of only three teams to go a perfect 8-0; driven by Randy Phalgoo, programmed by Tom Vo, coached by Sebastian Sorma, and supported by Hector Lopez, David Leskiv, and Anthony Andino. They were the number 2 seeded alliance captain and eventually lost their first matches of the tournament in the finals. They finished as Tournament Finalists (second place) and requalified for the State Tournament in March. Please join us in congratulating the Robotics Team under the direction and guidance of Mr. Svec. Feel free to drop Mr. Svec a congratulatory email at greg.svec@clevelandmetroschools.org
