MHS Robotics Takes Lead as Champs
By Coach Edwin Mendija
Molokai High School Robotics competed at and won the 2018 East Oahu VEX Robotics Tournament on Aug. 18. The tournament was hosted by Sacred Hearts Academy and featured the top robotics teams in the State of Hawaii, including this past season’s State Champions.
Team 1037A (Randall Cabreros and Maria Angst) went undefeated throughout the qualification rounds and ended up also sweeping the quarter, semi, and finals rounds with their partners from Pearl City High School to take the first State and National Championship qualifying tournament of the 2018-2019 VEX Robotics season. With their strong performance, they were also given the “Amaze Award,” an award given to a team with an amazing, well-rounded and top-performing robot. Molokai High School Robotics is now off to a running start for the new season!
We would like to thank and recognize our sponsors DOW Agrosciences, Monsanto Hawaii, Molokai Island Foundation, and all of our other sponsors for their support of our growing robotics program at Molokai High.
