Three Westchester Intermediate School robotics teams placed in the finals at a robotics competition recently hosted in Crown Point. Team 91362 C won the Skills Award which is a combination of the highest driving and autonomous score.

Team 91362 A won the Excellence Award which also gives them a bid to the State competition. This award goes to the top overall team at a competition and considers things like robot design, engineering notebook, driving and coding skills, along with sportsmanship and a judge's interview.

All three teams had a magnificent start to the competition season. Members of all three robotics teams are Isabel Bartkus, Ayden Bozak, Ethan Glassman, Ray Hundt, Kenzie Kania, Luke Kisala, Caden Koedyker, Maddox McKinney, William Morgan, Ryan Postelnik, Lincoln Rhoda, Aiden Sweet and Keith Ward. Coaches are teacher Kaitlyn Toweson and volunteer Brad Sweet.
