Dragon Academics Advances to Regionals

Carroll_UIL_Academic_Regional_Qualifiers_2015The Carroll Senior High School students are preparing for the next challenge during the spring competition season. Three Dragon Academics teams advanced to the Regional UIL Meet happening later this month on the University of Texas at Arlington campus. Social Studies, CompSci and Current Events teams advanced to the Regional Meet, along with 26 students, out of District.

The Carroll Social Studies team, earned the highest score in the state for 6A schools at a recent meet and is favored to win Regionals. The team is also two-time defending State Champions.

“This is the strongest team I’ve ever had” said Social Studies coach and Academic Coordinator John P. Irish, who has won 7 state titles out of 10 years. “Last year’s group was my strongest up to this point, but this team is solid. All four students could win an individual state title.”

The Region 1-6A Meet will be held on the campus of UT Arlington, on April 24-25.

Robotics Teams Qualify For Regional Championship

The Carroll Dragon Robotics team qualified for the Regional Championship tournament after successful finishes in the FTC Regional Qualifers last weekend in Mansfield.

Carroll had two of the 20 robots entered in the event. Robotics tournaments consist of competition rounds (round-robin style). The winning robotos from the competition rounds get to choose partners for the final rounds. Carroll’s robots finished first and second in the competition rounds and produced an all-Carroll final.

In addition to winning the top two spots, Carroll earned the Connect Award (team most connected with their local community and engineering community) and the Inspire Award (team that embodies the “challenge” of the FTC program).

The Inspire award is regarded as the highest honor and most coveted award in the competition.
