M-A Robotics team finishes first at meet

Menlo-Atherton High School took home the hardware, literally, with a first-place alliance finish at the FIRST Robotics Sacramento Regional Competition held March 13-15 at UC Davis.

As part of the winning alliance, led by Spartan Robotics Team 971 of Mountain View High School and including Citrus Circuits Team 1678 of Davis, California, Menlo-Atherton's Team 766 earned a spot at the national competition to be held April 23-26 in St. Louis.

Fifty-four teams competed at the Sacramento Regional Event. This year's game, Aerial Assist, required teams to pass an inflatable exercise ball between robots and then shoot the ball into various goals and over a center truss spanning the playing field.

People can see M-A's bot in action April 3-5 at the Silicon Valley Regional competition at the Event Center at San Jose State University. Admission is free.
