Two FHS Teams going to Worlds 23!

On March 11 and 12, the Framingham High School Robotics Club hosted the Southern New England Regional High School Championship. Eighty of the best teams from Massachusetts and Connecticut attended the two-day competition at Walsh Middle School. These teams competed in the 22-23 and participated in 200 matches to determine the top 16 alliances that would go into the eliminations round.

Team 9421R – Roboty McRobotface – entered the elimination rounds in 4th place with 8 wins and 1 loss. They made it to the semifinals, and this qualified them for the World Championship. The team is made up of 12th graders CJ Crocker, Ryan McLoughlin, Brady Levensohn, Zach Dustin and Tyler Garofalo. These five students attended the Middle School World Championship in 2019 where they received the Inspire Award in their Division.

Team 9421H – Hot Sauce – was 6-3 and entered eliminations in 17th place. While they lost in the first round of eliminations, they were able to qualify for the World Championship based on their performance in the Robot Skills category. The team is made up of 10th graders: Hartej Anand, Liam Hebert, Liam Parker, Joshua Peace, Kanwardeep Randhawa, Nick Swan and Ben Zislin. This will be the first Worlds Championship for them all.

Teams from FHS Robotics have participated in the VEX Robotics World Championship in

2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020.

Framingham High School Robotics was started in 2013 by a group of six students who saw a flyer for the club and thought it might be fun. This was the same year the Walshbots started at Walsh Middle School. This year, Framingham Robotics (FHS Robotics and Walshbot)  hosted more than 300 robotics teams who participated in nine different robotics competitions, including the Middle and High School Regional Championships.
