A five-student team from Enumclaw High has earned the right to compete in the state robotics competition in February.

The Robo Knights – consisting of Nathan Erickson, Hailey Henken, Chloe Nemish, Billy Staley and Jacob Woodley – will represent EHS Feb. 11 at the ShoWare Center in Kent. There will be 36 teams in attendance, all having qualified from an original pool of about 160 teams from throughout the state.

The Robo Knights headed to three events during November and December at Tacoma schools, competing in five qualifying matches each time. The EHS students posted a 14-1 record during those 15 matches. During a robotics playoff, the local students came in second, guaranteeing a spot in the state event.

Top teams from the February state competition can advance to the Super Regional, which draws teams roughly from the western half of the United States. The elite teams from the Super Regional are invited to the World Championships.
