The, Robotics team is having astounding early season success.

“I am really looking forward to this season for many different reasons, but the main reason is the chance to make it to the State rounds or possibly Worlds. I truly believe that this can be the year we make it far. In our league, we were able to beat Center Grove, who had like three different teams. We beat a few of the middle school teams that are in our league as well. Our only loss is to a homeschooled team that is able to practice more often than us, however, we feel that if we get the chance to play them again, we would be able to beat them,” junior Charlie Jackson said.

Even with the teams’ success so far this season, the group is very young and has a lot to learn.

“Before the end of the season, I would love to teach my underclassmen everything that I know because we do not have any juniors. Once I leave, there will be no one to guide them, so I am trying to do the best job I can,” senior Sophia Alexander said.

The team practices Mondays and Wednesdays from 6-8 p.m. These practices are crucial in developing their younger team members.

“We have some great new team members that have been improving every practice. Our builders and programmers have been great and brought a lot of new ideas to the table so far this year,” Alexander said.

Most practices are eventful and include members working on a bunch of different tasks.

“A normal practice looks like builders building and fixing the robot. Programmers improving and keeping the code running, and drivers practicing their driving skills. During our practice, time goes by really quick, so we always have to maximize all our time,” junior Jos
