Helix Robotics Team Advance to Championship

On Saturday, January 31st, Griswold High School Freshmen Ethan Jack and Christina Monson took home the First Place trophy in the First Technical Challenge Columbia Basin League Championship competition in Hermiston, Oregon.   Ethan and Christina are the Helix Robotics team #8590 and are coached by Jack Bascomb.

They competed in five rounds of qualifying play, winning all five.  These five wins gave the Helix team 25 qualifying points, and were second only to Pendleton who had 26 points. 

After a couple of elimination rounds, Helix went head to head with a Pendleton team in the final eliminations match.  In round 1, Pendleton balanced a rolling goal on the Helix ramp, which was knocked over with a penalty of 300 points, with Helix loosing 102 to 401.  In the second round, Ethan blocked their goal placement and Pendleton suffered a penalty.  Helix won 314 to 104.  The final round was very exciting with a lot of action.  Helix won with 296 to 140. This gave them first place in the championship and a nice trophy.

Helix team #8590 will move on to the Super Qualifying tournament in the Greater Portland area in the third week of February.  The team has been sponsored by a grant from the Oregon Department of Education, and donations from the Helix Cemetery District and the Helix Booster's Club.

Good Luck at the Tournament Ethan, Christina and Coach Bascomb!!
