Issaquah, along with 30 other high school robotics teams from Oregon and Washington, competed this weekend at the Sundome in Yakima. This was our second district-level competition this season.

Individual Student Awards: We would like to congratulate IHS juniors Sophia Mulroni and Jacob Lessing, who are our nominations for the FIRST Dean’s List award. The Dean’s List award recognizes outstanding students for their technical expertise, contributions to the team, and leadership. Jacob Lessing was selected by judges at the Sundome competition to complete for district-level Dean’s List award for all of Oregon and Washington. 

On-field Performance:

    • We advanced to the semi-finals as part of an alliance of three robotics teams – the other two teams were from Pullman, WA and Pendleton, OR.
    • Our alliance was defeated by an alliance from Henry M. Jackson HS in Mill Creek, Seattle Christian School, and Wapato HS (near Yakima). This alliance went on to win in the finals.

District Ranking: Based on our performance at our first two competitions, Issaquah HS is currently ranked 10th out of 145 robotics teams in Oregon and Washington that have competed this year. Only the first two competitions count towards district rankings and many ranked teams have not yet completed their second competition, so our rank will drop as the season progresses. Nevertheless we are in a solid position with respect to qualifying for this year’s Pacific Northwest (PNW) District Championships. Sixty-four robotics teams will qualify for the PNW championships.

Next up: We are looking forward to our upcoming competitions. These are fun events. Everyone is invited to attend and cheer on our future engineers and scientists.

      • March 30–31; Auburn High School, Auburn, WA. Best day for spectators: Sunday, 31 March.
      • Pacific Northwest District Championships: 3 – 6 April, Greater Tacoma Convention Center. Best day for spectators: Saturday, 6 April.
