On Thursday, March 21, the Beaver County RoboSumo competition was held in the Freedom Area Middle School gym. Twenty-nine teams from nine different schools came to battle with their custom robots. The students have to build the robots using LEGO EV3 kits, making sure they stay within the guidelines, and then they program them to push their opponents off the edge of the board. There are multiple rounds, and the teams rotate. The teams fight for best of three, but they can draw. The eight winning teams have a chance to make it to the finals.

Two of our own teams made it to the finals; Aries, built by Luke Snavely, Jacob DiCenzo and David Denkovich, who won second place, and Freedom 5 made by Jason Mengel, Beau DeThomas and Christopher Denkovich, who won third place. Western Beaver ended up taking first place in the middle school division.
