Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School was proud to host a Vex Robotics state qualifying tournament in the Dolly Barranco Activity Center at the Middle/High School campus in early January 2017.
Led by faculty members Dr. Joe Profio and Mr. Rob Russell, Montgomery Catholic’s “Robo Knights” hosted the first robotics event at Montgomery Catholic and only the second of its kind in the region. The Knights competed with four of the 18 teams present from four visiting schools—Brew Tech,
Enterprise, Ohatchee, and St. James high school. The whole community came together with parents, students, and faculty serving as volunteer referees, announcers, event staff and even kitchen crew.
Montgomery Catholic expressed gratitude to the staff and students from Brew Tech who were willing to share equipment and expertise to help MCPS make the event such a successful one.
The Knights and their robots finished well, with three of four teams represented in the final four matches—well done!
