DP Robotics Wins Second Regional

By Jordan Ecarma, News-Press Staff Writer

The Dos Pueblos robotics team won the Las Vegas Regional FIRST Robotics Competition on Saturday, its second regional win of the year.

Team 1717, also known as the D'Penguineers, shared its win with two allies: Team 3245, the Ravens of The Waterford School in Sandy, Utah; and Team 4276, Viking Robotics of Marina High School in Huntington Beach.

Victory in Vegas!

Two regional robot competitions . . . two championships for the Dos Pueblos Engineering Academy’s Team 1717. A dominating run of six straight wins in the final rounds earned the school’s high-scoring, disc-throwing robot the overall victory in its second straight regional event. Saturday’s big win in Las Vegas follows on the heels of a title earlier this month in Long Beach. D’Penguineers, as they are also known, head to the FIRST Robotics World Championships in St. Louis later in April as one of the teams to beat.
