Pine River-Backus Robotics team had mixed results at the robotics competition Friday and Saturday, March 6-7, in Duluth.

“On Friday we had a couple of great wins - in qualification match 23 we set the high score for the day - but then we ran into a period of mechanical troubles and some bad luck with teammates so by end of Saturday our overall ranking was middle of the pack,” said team coach Andrew Rudlang. “Lots of fun though.“

FIRST Robotics Competition has now canceled or postponed all remaining competition events because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
