Bobcat Robotics Team 177 competed in their first event of the school year at Old Lyme High School. The Bobcats were undefeated through the entire event and captured the First Seed Award after qualifications. Their robot, pit crew and drive team sailed through the play offs to come out as Event Champions!

The team also captured the event's most prestigious award for Gracious Professionalism. This award goes to the team that best represents the spirit of FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology). The term, gracious professionalism, was coined by MIT professor Woodie Flowers, who passed away last week. Gracious Professionalism is a way of doing things that encourages high-quality work, emphasizes the value of others, and respects individuals and the community.

Congratulations to the entire team!
