An Upper St. Clair robotics team, TeraBridges (Team #18603), won the top score and rank in a recent six-team FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) scrimmage hosted by the USC Robotics Club on Saturday, April 2 at Upper St. Clair High School.

In addition to TeraBridges, Upper St. Clair teams participating included BotsBurgh (Team #11792) and USC Dynamics (Team #20223). Visiting teams included MARS Ingenuity (Team #20079) and MARS Opportunity! (Team #16776) from the Mars area of Butler County, and the Robotic Doges (Team #8645) from the Laurel Highlands area.

Robotics teams participated in nine qualification rounds where teams paired up in alliances to compete in this year’s FIRST Tech Challenge Freight Frenzy game. The event concluded with teams creating alliances to battle for the championship position. The USC Robotics Club is spearheaded by Tracy Smith, Upper St. Clair physics and robotics teacher.

“This event was a success due to the dedication of students, parents, and coaches throughout the school year,” Mrs. Smith said. “A special thanks to coaches Jeff Beckstead, Yoshi Henderson, Stephanie Holsopple, Batool Nulwala and Navin Parmar for making the USC Robotics Scrimmage run smoothly.”
