Although the season didn’t end the way the Cometbots had hoped, the Halifax County High School robotics team members are holding their heads high and calling it a successful run landing them 18th out of 127 teams in the district.
The Comebots started the FIRST World Competition in Detroit, Michigan, on a high note ending Thursday with a record of 3-1.
They won their first match, before losing their second due to damages to their robot.
“We were damaged in our second match when we collided with an alliance partner during the sandstorm period, in which we drive using only cameras on board our robot. We managed to make some quick repairs and recovered in the next match,” said Adam Reeves, robotics instructor.
They went on to win their next two matches.
