A Force to be Reckoned With

Congratulations to the CyberKnights on a successful season and an amazing showing at the Robotics World Championship! Last week, the team traveled to Houston, Texas to compete against thousands of robotics teams from around the world. The CyberKnights ended up in the top 24!

“The team was amazing,” said Mr. Thompson, head coach of the CyberKnights. “This was a rebuilding year and the team far exceeded my expectations.  One of the toughest challenges this year was to complete a rocket and only a few teams in the world were able to accomplish this task solo.  At Worlds, we did it 5 times!  We were also the 4th in the world to complete a double rocket with a partner.”

The CyberKnights finished 2nd in the Carver division and were knocked out in the semifinals. However,  this placed the team in the top 24 in the world out of about 3000 teams.

“With this performance, we established ourselves as one of the top tier teams in the world,” said Mr. Thompson. “For the second year running, we finished in the top two in divisions at Worlds which is extremely rare.  The CyberKnights are a force to be reckoned with!”
