Morgan Cuthbert shared the following information about the Clipperbots' exciting end to their season- congratulations to all!
The HMS Clipperbots traveled to Hampden Academy on February 15th for the Maine State VEX Competition.
After the initial qualification matches the Clipperbots held onto 2nd place out of 30 Teams, with a 6-1 win to loss set of matches. They placed ahead of 28 high school teams, (3 of them being our very own Yarmouth High School teams) and 1 other middle school, which is an amazing accomplishment!
In the alliance rounds we won our first quarterfinal match, but lost in the semifinals to Fatal Error, from United Technologies Center, who later won the event. For our second year of the program this was an amazing finish. We were anchored by our 8th graders, Tori Moore and Reed Oestreicher. Their leadership and calm under pressure will be missed next year. Our other team members include Emmett Herr, Eli Anderson, Phil Bock, Jackson Rollins, Hannah Zimmerman and Sam Weinberg. We look forward to these students returning next year, along with others who would like to join us.
As always we thank our parent coaches Mr. Moore and Mr. Weinberg!
The club will go on break until the end of March.
~Mr. Cuthbert and Mr. Harrington -HMS Clipperbot Coaches
