Tyler Dufrene and 21 Hahnville students, collectively known as the Tigerbots, had an amazing 2018-19 competition season. The team’s outstanding performance since January resulted in an invitation to compete in the 2019 FRC Championship in Houston, Texas.
From April 17-21, the Tigerbots scouted, planned, practiced and collaborated with a myriad of teams in Houston to help ensure their success on Carver field. It was at the eleventh hour that the Tigerbots secured a spot in the Quarterfinals. This was the first time in the team’s history to make it to the playoffs at the national championship. Even though the team did not advance from that point, everyone was ecstatic to have achieved a new team record.
Aside from robotics, the Tigerbots had a blast bowling and eating out together. They even received a visit from the Easter Bunny and HHS Principal Brian Lumar.
