A-Tech wins AWT RoboBots Competition

On Apr. 30, 28 high school teams from Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake and Summit counties competed at Lakeland Community College’s Athletic and Fitness Center. The sixth-annual regional robotics combat robotics competition was presented by the Alliance for Working Together Foundation and sanctioned by the National Robotics League.

Sparks and metal flew as the bots’ weapons collided in a Lexan cage during three-minute, double-elimination rounds until the last bot standing belonged to “Atech Machinists” from Ashtabula County Technical and Career Center with last year’s champs “Dreadnaught” from Madison High School in second place and “Beaumonsters” from Beaumont School in third place.

Each team was paired with a local manufacturing sponsor that provided financial support and technical advice to its team. And, for the first time, 27 middle-school teams competed in the 1.5-minute, single-elimination Junior Bots Competition with mini robot kits that they assembled and drove. “Team Bombers” from Kenston Middle School took first place.

Congrats to all the teams, especially HGR’s “Untouchables” from Euclid High School! Euclid High’s team, coached by Jason Coleman and Bob Torrelli, included students Alex Bowman, Ethan Clark, Eddie Conger, Corbin Gray, Dan Hercik, Connor Hoffman, Luke Johnson, Peter Powell, Joshua Ritchey and Dayna Shirer.

Here are our tweets — and one from AWT Robobots — sharing the Untouchables’ progress.
