The Baylor FIRST LEGO League Team was one of 36 teams to advance to the FIRST LEGO League TVA SuperRegionals after competition in the TVA Chattanooga Regional Qualifier earlier in December. This is the second year in a row that the Baylor team has advanced to the SuperRegionals.
The qualifying team includes sixth graders, Redding Batt, Jack Champion, Crawford Higdon, and Michael Iqbal; seventh grader, Ally Creswell; and eighth graders, Shayan Bajestani Colby Hawk and Joshua Lefkoff. The team is coached by faculty members Dr. Mary Loveless and Dr. Vince Betro.
"The team improved in every area from last year's competition and they will be honing their skills even more over the next couple of weeks," said Dr. Betro, mentioning that the SuperRegional competition is scheduled for Jan. 13 at Chattanooga State Community College.
"Congratulations to all these students," said Dr. Loveless. "Our robot, design, project, and core values were all very solid in our qualifier. Now we have a bit of time to make them even more amazing."
