From an Everett Public Schools April 12, 2019, news release.

Undefeated this season and bringing home an unprecedented fourth win, Jackson High School’s robotics Team 2910 Jack In The Bot clinched the 2019 FIRST Washington Pacific Northwest Championship and are headed to Houston, TX for the national competition the week of April 16th to 21st.

The Tacoma Convention Center was rocking with energy the week of April 4th through 6th as FIRST Washington hosted the Pacific Northwest Championship, which includes the states of Alaska, Oregon, and Washington.

“The Jack In The Bot team faced intense competition throughout the event, but the drive team was more than up to the task,” said Maggie Thorleifson, Jackson High robotics advisor and coach.

She went on to say, “The success of this team directly reflects the dedication of the coaches, mentors and students throughout the year, following an engineering cycle of continuous improvement. The team is greatly inspired by Patrick Woolfenden, the engineering coach and designer of the swerve drive. Team members meet after every match and debrief what they saw and what can be improved.”

The team also earned the Quality Award that celebrates machine robustness in concept and fabrication.

“We're not letting up. We are going to face the top robots in the world and we want to be ready for them!”
