Robot built by students


On Saturday, November 6th, Cyclone Robotics won both Tournament Champion and Excellence Awards at the Nashville Classic Robotics Tournament in Nashville, AR.

Both Cyclone and Whirlwind robotics competed in the tournament.  Team numbers 967Y, 967S, and 967V from RHS as well as 967J, 967X, and 967Z from RJHS competed.  

  • Team 967Y made an alliance with a Greenwood robotics team to compete in a single-elimination tournament where they beat out all other teams to win Tournament Champion. Team 967Y also won the Excellence Award for the top all-around team.  The Excellence Award is the highest award presented in the VEX Robotics competition. This award is presented to a team that exemplifies overall excellence in building a high-quality robotics program. This team is a strong contender in numerous award categories.
  • Team 967S made an alliance with a Sheridan high school robotics team and lost in the quarter-finals during elimination matches.
  • Teams 967J and 967Z aligned with each other to compete in the elimination matches and lost in the quarter-finals as well.

Team 967Y has now qualified for the Arkansas State Championship scheduled for March 12, 2022, at Arkansas Tech University.  They are also traveling to Houston, TX from November 20th through the 23rd to compete against teams at a national competition.  

We are very proud of these students' accomplishments and are excited to see them grow and improve as the year progresses! Go Whirlwinds!
