St. Peter Catholic School had two teams to participate in the NC FIRST Lego League Championship tournament in Greensboro last month.

Of the nearly 60 teams competing, the WiredCats Blue had the 11th highest score in the autonomous robot game competition, and the WiredCats Green had the 16th highest score.

The WiredCats teams qualified for the state championship because of their performance at last fall's FIRST Lego League Regional Qualifying Tournament, where they were among six teams selected from the 20 that participated. At the regional competition, Wiredcats Green won the engineering project presentation trophy for its robotic composting toilet. Wiredcats Blue won the robotic programming trophy.

Wiredcats Blue team members are Andrea Castillo, Jamie Galinis, Lauren Hodgson, Brighton Hou, Carter Lamson, Tiago Marlow, Stuart O'Connor, Jasmine Pandya, Jeremiah Reid and Gerald Reiling.

Wiredcats Green team members are Skyler Barnaby, Lincoln Bond, Alex Cooper, Frankie Kennedy, Jason Napast, Elliana Proctor, Jackson Schreiber, Alexander Turner and Rylan Tuten.

The teams are coached by John Bell and Kevin Pandya. Former St. Peter students Allanah Napast, Ryan Moloney and Nate Hasselbach, who are now in high school, served as mentors this season.
