On Jan. 30, six teams from HISD’s Pilgrim Academy competed in the Texas Computer Education Association (TCEA) Area 4 Robotics Competition — and three of those teams took home top honors when they swept the Advanced Arena Division for middle- and high-school students.

Congratulations go out to: Oscar Herrera and Ramiro Ruiz (first place), Alina Flores and Cameron Flores (second place), and Ashley Rosas, Alexandra Gutierrez, and Kimberly Lacan (third place).

Another group of Pilgrim students also placed first in the Intermediate Arena Division (elementary and middle school). They are: Alexander Ajpacaja, Hever Mendez, Charlie Regalizo, and Elijah Romero.

Pilgrim was the only HISD school to have students place at the competition. They will be advancing to the TCEA State Robotics Competition on April 30.
