Windom Robotics loses just once en route to own title

Windom Eagles Robotics' "Butterfingers" team turned in another strong performance Saturday - and in front of their hometown followers.

The Butterfingers team went 6-1 in qualification matches to rank third heading into alliance selection. Then, allied with two other teams, it swept its six elimination round matches to take the championship of the Windom VEX Robotics Tournament in the Windom Area Middle High School Blue Gym.

Windom's Iron Eagles team went 3-3-1 in qualification matches, but bowed out of the elimination round in the quarterfinals.

"This was probably the most consistent match they've had where the robot did not have problems," said Windom Robotics coach Kent Kelly, referring to the Butterfingers' championship performance. "There are some little things they want to improve on, but for the most part the robot performed very consistently, which is the goal.

"When you get to the next level at state, that's what you've got to be able to do successfully."

For much more on the tournament, see the story on the education page in the Jan. 10 issue of the Cottonwood County Citizen on newsstands today.
