TAG Robotics Team – State Competition

The TAG ‘RoboTAG’ Robotics team competed in the Texas State Championship on December 7 – 9 at UTD and the Dr. Pepper Arena in Frisco, TX. Our team competed against 72 other teams from across the state of Texas. The team performed phenomenally, eventually losing in a hard fought wildcard match slipping just shy of earning a spot in the top 16 by a hair. Congratulations to Dr. Strong and the team for their phenomenal season! Also, a special thank you to Mr. Jia for hosting the teams practices and for all the time volunteered to the Robotics program.
