Robotics Win In District, On To PNW Championship

Congratulations to the BHHS Robotics Team (Team 4110: DEEP SPACE NINERS) for the BIG WIN on Saturday, March 30, in the finals of the FIRST Robotics District Meet in Lake Oswego.

The team was part of an alliance of three teams along with Team 4043 - NerdHerd from McMinnville and Team 4488 - Shockwave from Glencoe High School in Hillsboro that won the championship set of matches.

The team got the official word on Monday, April 1, following the tournament that they earned a trip to the Pacific Northwest FIRST District Championship 2019, April 3-6, 2019 at the Greater Tacoma Convention Center in Tacoma, Washington.

"This is a great improvement," said teacher and coach Gary Suter. "Last year we didn’t even make playoffs."

At the Tacoma event this past weekend, the team won and lost a series of qualifying matches and ultimately did not make the playoff round, but what an amazing season it has been!

The team thanks all of its regional and local sponsors including Brookings-Harbor High School, Boeing, Oregon Department of Education, AutoDesk, Brookings-Harbor Lions Club, First Tech Federal Credit Union, DW Fritz, In Memory of Josh Fisher, Pacific Ocean Properties and BC Fisheries LLC.
