After a long weekend of broken parts and design flaws to overcome, Team Sprocket brought a prestigious “Blue Banner” home to DBHS.
Team Sprocket is the 2018 FRC Orange County Regional Winner!!!
This email could go on for a mile with the wonderful efforts that these students engaged in over the course of three days, so let me give you the highlights:
- On Friday, Team Sprocket hosts 36 Middle school students and 3 teachers from Chaparral, South Pointe & Suzanne Middle schools to tour the competition pits and enjoy FRC matches, in an effort to inspire the next generation of engineers and promote the expansion of FIRST Robotics in WVUSD.
- After 2 days of game play, Team Sprocket finishes qualification matches with a record of 7-3-0, ranked 12th out of 52 teams.
- TS is selected as the 1st pick for the 3rd Ranked Alliance; Alliance members = “Assembly Required” (Santa Margarita) & “The Midnight Mechanics” (La Jolla)
Playoffs (2 out of 3 = winner)
- Quarter-Finals - TS defeats the 6th ranked alliance (2-0)
- Semi-Finals – TS defeats the 2nd ranked alliance (2-1)
- Finals – TS defeats the 1st ranked alliance (2-0) ; This accomplishment is even more impressive considering that the #1 Alliance consisted of the #1 & #2 overall ranked teams. #1 (Friarbots) were (10-0-0) and #2 (Code Orange) were (9-1-0) entering playoffs. They were undefeated in Quarters and Semis (combined record of 23-1-0)… and then they met up with our Alliance. Team Sprocket and their alliance members stunned the arena by taking down “Goliath” in 2 straight matches with an unconventional defensive strategy… securing the title of FRC Orange County Regional Winners.
The team will be heading off to Houston for the World Championships, April 18th-21st, for the 2nd year in a row… but this time as a regional champion!!!
AWARDS CEREMONY: We are excited and proud that Diamond Bar High School's competitive robotics team, Team Sprocket, was part of the three team coalition that WON the 2018 FIRST Robotics Orange County Regional Competition Saturday, March 24, at UC Irvine. At the end of the qualifying rounds, tensions were high after an arm on their robot broke. They were able to repair it in time for the quarter finals. Their win qualifies them to go to the FIRST Robotics World Championship in Houston, Texas, for the second year in a row APRIL 18-21, 2018! Go Brahmas!

Monday, March 19, DBHS junior Jeremy Davis was heard nationally on National Public Radio's "FROM THE TOP". The host, Christopher O'Riley, interviewed a few young musicians who had won national instrumental music awards. (This posted video is an edited version of that show.)
As the winner of the prestigious Jack Kent Cooke Young Artist Award this year, Jeremy received a $10,000 scholarship. Davis first knew of the opportunity through DBHS band director Steve Acciani, who encouraged him to try out.
The scholarship, awarded to five exemplary musicians in the nation, was given to students based on recordings they sent in.
With the money, Davis plans to buy the assorted instruments he needs because unlike other musicians, percussionists need to master a variety of instruments.
Wednesday, March 21, representatives from Southern California Edison surprised Brahma senior Tanya Yang with a $40,000 Southern California Edison International Scholarship check.
Edison Scholars recognizes students who want to be makers of tomorrow – the dreamers, inventors, guardians and pioneers – those who dare to be great.
Tanya has been accepted to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and plans to major in chemical engineering. She is a valedictorian candidate who is involved in orchestra, robotics and Science Olympiad.
Each year, Edison International awards $40,000 scholarships to 30 high school seniors who want to make a difference in the world by studying science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) in college.
From helping to prevent the rise of ocean levels to increasing access to solar power in under served communities, real issues need bright ideas to create change. This is a chance for students to stand up, advance their education, and be part of the solution.
