The Water Way represented Hayhurst at the First Lego League Oregon State Championship on Sunday, January 20th. FLL is a international robotics program for 4th-8th grade students. The tWater Way had an outstanding day, scoring high in all judging areas and ranking 14th out of 64 teams in the Robot Game. They more than doubled their local tournament score, scoring a whopping 144 points on their final round!
One of the most exciting successes was that the team made a last minute change to an attachment which helped them complete a difficult mission right at the buzzer. What a fun way to end their final round! While they didn’t win any awards they were one of only two teams who received tournament “shout outs”. It was quite a compliment for this young, rookie team.
Please be sure to congratulate all the members of the AMAZING Water Way when you see them: Oliver Carr, Halle Hubert, Xander Pitzman, Lauren Andler, Knnon Walter, Lauren Devlin, Neea Mende and Lena Mende. A very special thanks to all the parents and volunteers who helped both teams this season! We appreciate you so much!
