Team SCREAM – Smith-Cotton Robotics, Engineering and Mathematics – lost Saturday in the semifinals of the Greater Kansas City FIRST Robotics Regional Championships held at the MCC Business & Technology campus in Kansas City. S-C’s squad, in just its second year of competition, was teamed up with Lee’s Summit High School and Archbishop O’Hara High in the final rounds; they fell to the alliance led by Lincoln College Preparatory Academy of Kansas City.
Team SCREAM advisor Michael Wright said, “I’m just really proud of them, this is a good showing. This is one of the toughest, best regionals in the country.”
