Cybersonics at Lehigh U

Today, we had the good fortune of being able to get out to Lehigh University to watch our Cybersonics Tech Team 103 compete in the Mid-Atlantic Regional Competition for F.I.R.S.T. Robotics!  There were about 60 teams competing, and they will be there through Saturday.  The game played by the robots built by these teams required the robots to perform many tasks including placing a plastic cover on a hole for a holding tower for beach ball sized balls, placing these large balls in the holding tower and finally climbing back onto a podium when the round was ending - points are tallied for various level of completion by the robots!  The talent of the students involved with our Cybersonics team is top-notch, and they were in the top ten when we were leaving the competition today!

Check out the article here:  MORNING CALL ARTICLE

You say CYBER...We say SONICS!  GO CYBERSONICS!  Onto national competition at the end of April!  For more on the team, visit www.cybersonics.net

Katie Holmes and Athletic Dept.

Best of luck to trainer, Katie Holmes (pictured above with our Athletic Dept. staff), who has taken the Head Athletic Training job at Pocono Mountain West Middle School. For those of you who have been around our athletic programs during the past few years, you would have come across a one-of-a kind trainer. Katie has not only been a great athletic trainer, but she has been a special part of the Palisades community. She always did more than her job description detailed and did so with a smile.  We wish her the very best and hope that she come back and visit! Thank you Katie!
