Robotics Wins First Place
Congratulations to our Robotics team 6526G! Team members, Jonathan Tran, Davis Carrillo, Justin Camargo, Arden Mahintorabi, Jaden Santiago, Sarah Ramirez, and Lena Shindy won first place at a tournament on Saturday, October 29, 2016. Their first place victory in Downey automatically secures them a spot at the state championships in March 2017!
Last year we had three teams make it to the state championships and two teams make it to the World Championship. Securing this spot allow our team to focus on what’s ahead at World Championship while the other four teams will focus on making it into the state championships! It was a huge win and we are so excited.

U.S. Open National Robotics Championships
From April 7-9, 2015 the Damien Robotics Team, including St. Lucy’s junior Breann Garcia, competed in the U.S. Open National Robotics Championship in Council Bluffs, Iowa. They worked hard for 3 long days and ended up being one of the top ranked teams in the nation. They were chosen by another top ranked team to be in alliance with for the rest of the competition. From there, they were able to make it to the Quarter-Finals and were tied for 5th out of 200 teams in the nation that competed. On Friday, April 17, the new game for the next season will be announced and the team is anxious to get started right away in anticipation of returning and going further next year. We are very proud of them and are looking forward to what they will accomplish next.
Damien/St. Lucy’s Robotics teams
The Damien/St. Lucy’s Robotics teams just finished their season at the end of January in the top of our league. We had one team make it to the Championship round and took second place against a team that is ranked 47th in the World right now. They gave them a good fight and it was a close game. The team also brought home the “Energy” Award for their enthusiasm. The “Energy” Award goes to the team that demonstrates boundless passion and energy and their energy enriches the event experience for others. Part of the award was how much the audience cheered us on and supported our team.
Our young engineers have made a name for themselves and the judges and other teams in our league were very impressed with how well we have done in the first two years of our robotics program. The kids have done an amazing job. As a result of all their hard work our top team qualified for the US Open National Robotics Championship. We will be competing against the top teams in the nation April 7th-9th in Council Bluffs, Iowa. We are looking forward to making all of our Damien and St. Lucy’s Family proud.
