Crown Point Robotics Have Another Great Season

Crown Point Community School Corporation's VEX Robotics teams have had a fantastic season, with many teams achieving outstanding results. This year, over 9,000 high school Vex Robotics Challenge (VRC) teams worldwide represented 50 nations, and 800 teams from 41 countries attended the World Championships in Dallas, TX. Among them were Crown Point Community School Corporation's teams, who have achieved more than a few feats throughout the season.

Indiana is one of the most competitive states in the country for robotics, with 226 high school VRC teams. Crown Point High School's VEX Robotics is currently the largest high school VEX organization in the state of Indiana, both in terms of student participants and individual sub-teams. At most regional tournaments, Crown Point High School represented more than 20% of the total number of teams in attendance.

CPHS robotics attended 10 regional, 2 signature, a state, and a world tournament this year. This means that the students who made Worlds spent a total of 21 days at some sort of tournament this season.

As a combined team, the students won nine regional tournament champion awards, five regional robot skills champion awards, 10 regional judged awards plus an excellence award, and all teams were in the top 25% of world skills rankings, with four teams in the top 10%. They also won one state judged award, one state divisional finalist award, one worlds divisional judged award, and one worlds divisional finalist award.

Crown Point High School had nine teams compete at state, the largest contingent from any one school or organization at the high school level. Of those, 24 teams were invited to the World Championships.

One of the most successful Worlds teams at Crown Point High School in at least 10 years was 1233W. The team members won two-time regional tournament champions, four-time regional robot skills champion, regional create and sportsmanship awards, and had a world skills ranking of 58. They were finalists at State and finalists in their division at Worlds, achieving 2nd place in their division.

Taft Middle School's Team 33334A, comprised of sixth-graders, worked hard and made it to Worlds. They ended the event 51st in their division. Team 33334E competed for the third time in middle school, ending their run 22nd in their division. Their scores put them within the top 6% and 3% in the world. Both Byting Bulldogs teams from Col. Wheeler Middle School had a great season, coming in 55th place in their respective divisions at Worlds.

The team from MacArthur Elementary sustained a broken robot during their competition, which placed them last in their division. However, the knowledge gained from the experience will undoubtedly have these students prepared to take on a successful robotics season next school year.

Crown Point Community School Corporation is incredibly proud of all its robotics teams and their achievements throughout the season.
