Camden Military cadets competed with the Kershaw County Robotics Team in the 13th annual Palmetto Regional FIRST Robotics Competition held in Myrtle Beach on Feb. 25 - 27.

Teams from high schools all over the world competed with robots they developed and operated. The team did really well! Overall the KC Robotics Team ranked 36 out of 64 teams who competed that day.

The FIRST Robotics competition has teams from all across America and some parts of Canada! Cadet Luke Gagliardo was the captain/coach of the team. Cadets David Gore and James Blair worked diligently on the robot during time between matches in what is called the Robot Pit. Cadet Giovanni Fortezzo was a team captain during some of the matches that we had that day. The FIRST Robotics Competition had roughly 70 matches that day. In the end the team had a wonderful time and can't wait for the next competition!
