Robotics team qualifies for VEX World Championships

Windom may be a new team when it comes to prep robotics competitions, but they're already turning heads.

For the second week in a row, the Windom team took second place at the Bemidji Robotics meet Saturday in Bemidji. And for the second week in a row, the team also brought home the Excellence Award, the only award presented at the competition.

However, unlike a week ago in Albert Lea, this Excellence Award earned them one very important additional honor - a trip to the VEX World Championships in Anaheim, Calif.
That competition will be held April 17-20 in Anaheim.

"The 10 judges that interviewed, observed and questioned them throughout the day, scored them as the Team of Excellence," said the team's coach, Bob Ruby. "They very much deserved it."

Thanks to a donation from the Remick Foundation, Windom was able to bring its entire team to the competition, however, five of the 10 team members were unable to attend due to other committments and complications. The quintet that competed at the Bemidji meet included seniors Ryan Helmoski and Nicholas Wolter, junior Isaac Steele and freshmen Nathan White and jackson Oltmans.

For more on the team, see the story in the Feb. 20 issue of the Cottonwood County Citizen on newsstands tomorrow.
