The Ladue Horton Watkins High School robotics team, Rambunction, took second place in the FIRST Robotics St. Louis Regional held at the Chaifetz Arena on March 13 – 15, 2014. After losing some close matches, the team was ranked 40th out of 45 teams at the end of qualifying rounds on Saturday morning. Westminster and Hazelwood Central chose Ladue to compete with their teams in the elimination matches on Saturday afternoon because of the robot’s strong defensive capabilities. The alliance of those three teams went all the way to the finals and proudly took home the second place trophy!
