Brewbaker Technology Magnet High’s robotics program cracked the world rankings after a competition in Gulf Shores and continues to build on its success.

 

The Brew Tech robotics team of William Sumlin, Trevor Taylor and Will Percival scored 147 points during its combined skills run at Gulf Shores Middle School’s “Bots on the Beach” VEX Robotics Competition. That score placed them at 22nd in the world. The most recent ranking had them at 25th. The world’s top 50 teams receive an automatic bid to the VEX Worlds Competition in March.


In addition to the VEX Robotics World’s Skills Award, Brew Tech students also brought home two Tournament Champion Awards, a separate Skills Award and the Judges Award. Sumlin, Taylor and Percival won one of the Tournament Champion Awards and the separate Skills Award. The team of Ashton Taylor, Blake Deaton and Ty Hooks won the other Tournament Champion award. The Tournament Champion Awards go to the top two-team alliance, making them the overall winners of the competition.

 

Their most recent competition was at Catholic High, where 12 Brew Tech robotics students and four robots competed in a VEX In the Zone Tournament. They won the Excellence Award, a Tournament Champions Award, two Tournament Finalist Awards and the Skills Award.
