The Digital Eagles finished their record-breaking season at the WOW Alliance Championship on May 18 in Austintown, Ohio. The top 32 FIRST robotics teams from West Virginia, Ohio and Western/Central Pennsylvania were invited to this Championship.
After 27 qualification rounds, the Digital Eagles were undefeated, in third place, and captains of their alliance team. The team's alliance lost, however, in a sudden death match in the quarterfinals after their alliance team robot suffered technical difficulties.
The Digital Eagles are proud of their success this season and are grateful for the support of the New Albany- Plain Local School District and the team’s sponsors, coaches (Doug Jones and Dave Effron), mentors and volunteers. We are looking forward to next season, and we will miss our seniors, Manasa Akella (team captain), Samantha Bowman and Elbek Umarov.
