On Saturday January 18, the Kerrville Robotics Alliance hosted forty robotics teams from around central Texas and the hill country at Schreiner University. The event brought together more than 200 robotics students and as many parents, teachers, and coaches. Fifty volunteers from Kerrville, Ingram, and Comfort helped pull the event off without a hitch.
“WOW! What a wonderful event that was on Saturday,” Adrien Wingard, director of auxiliary services for Schreiner University told the Alliance. “You had the best volunteers and you were so organized. It was so much fun … and I hope we can do this again next year!”
Inevitable, a local community team in Kerrville coached by Dan Apel, took first place in the event. [May 2020 Update: Inevitable went on to advance to the World Championship last year as the number one team in the entire region.] Second place went to the Kerrville ISD Tallybots, and third place to the Tom Daniels Robotics team. Participating teams travelled from all over central Texas including Hondo, Bandera, and San Antonio.
