Gogebic robotics team ranks 19th


ST. LOUIS — The Gogebic Range (Hurley-Bessemer) robotics team ranked in the top third Friday in its subdivision in national competition here.

The first year team that won a regional tournament in Duluth to qualify for the nationals ranked 19th in its subdivision with a 7-3 record.

There were 68 teams in the subdivision.

OP Robotics, from Stony Creek, Ontario, ranked first in the same subdivision.

A complicated scoring system listed the Gogebic team (6613) with a 1.77 ranking score, tied with two other teams. The first place OP team had a similar record, but had scored more ranking points, also based on auto, rotor, take-off and pressure classifications.

Hurley-Bessemer was in the Curie Subdivision, consisting of the 68 teams.

The national competition was scheduled to continue today.

The team left Tuesday at midnight for the championships in St. Louis.

The team planned to watch the St. Louis Cardinals host the Cincinnati Reds tonight.
