The Devine Robotics Team qualified for State this Sunday. Unfortunately, they were notified two days later that there was an error in the scoring and therefore they may not be advancing after all. As of press time Tuesday, Oct. 25 Devine is advocating for them, waiting on the news, and it is hoped that they will give them the opportunity to advance as first announced.
Devine High Schools Robotics Team shown here super excited after finishing high enough to qualify to continue on to State as announced last Sunday at the meet. Unfortunately, their Coach was notified two days later on Tuesday that there was an error in the scoring and therefore may not be advancing to the State contest after all. As of press time Tuesday, Oct. 25 Devine is advocating for them, waiting on the news, and it is hoped that they will find a spot for the team and give them the opportunity to advance. To get to the level of success, competitiveness and skill they did says a lot about their preparation, dedication and determination.
