The Arlington High School Neobots Robotics Team competed in the FIRST Robotics Mt. Vernon District Tournament March 1-3

 Thirty-two teams from Washington state participated in the competition. The Neobots team made it to the quarterfinals of the competition with their robot nicknamed “Berg.” The Neobots team finished the competition with a record of 4-10-0.

“The students have been working hard on Berg and the robot performed well during the competition,” said Mark Ehrhardt, team advisor. “The students will now evaluate what worked well and what needs more work.”

Thirty-five students currently participate on the Neobots team. They will be competing again this year at the West Valley District Tournament in Spokane, March 21-23.
