Congratulations Petoskey Robotics Team!

The Petoskey Robotics team just returned from Grand Rapids for the Michigan State Championships. Not only did they rank 41st in the state, they also won the Regional Chairman's Award (only 4 teams in the state are awarded this honor!).

The team is headed to St. Louis once again to compete in the World Championships and to present their Chairman's Application for the national Chairman's Award! 

The Team Coach, Mr. Ochs, also won a highly prestigious Action Award, for a coach who helps spread the word and support other local teams. 

  Mr. Ochs with his Action Award and some of the team - oh, and the Governor too!
