Rosemont High School’s robotics team is headed to the FIRST Robotics World Championship in St. Louis, the result of a first-place win at last weekend’s Sacramento Regional Competition held at UC Davis.

The Wolverines are the first SCUSD team to win first-place at the annual Davis tournament.

Teams from four SCUSD schools (Rosemont, Kennedy, C.K. McClatchy and School of Engineering and Sciences) battled it out with 60 other teams from around the state (and Hawaii) in the two-day qualifying competition. 

The superior performance of Rosemont’s Wolverines led to the team’s selection for an alliance in the final rounds. The alliance won every match and secured a trip to Missouri.

John F. Kennedy’s team earned the Quality Award which celebrates machine robustness in both concept and fabrication. Also, team captain Autumn Luna was recognized as a FIRST Dean’s List Finalist which celebrates outstanding student leaders whose passion for and effectiveness at attaining FIRST ideals is exemplary.

Go Wolverines!
