Newfield “Roverines” Robotics Team Takes Top Honors

Members of the Middle Country Central School District Newfield High School robotics team recently received the Tournament Champions and THINK Award trophies for their performance in the Massapequa VEX Starstruck Robotics Competition. The team, dubbed the Roverines, finished in first place in every statistical category at the competition, and won the THINK award for having the best autonomous programming out of any other participating high school. In addition, the team was also recognized as the team with the “best overall record,” “best offensive robot,” “best defensive robot,” “best autonomous score,” and “largest win differential.”


The Roverines competed against 34 other robots, and ultimately improved upon their score last year. This victory has earned the team a spot in the New York State VEX Robotics Championship in March, where they hope to keep improving.
