Cass Lake-Bena's 'Accelerators' clinch first-ever world invite for FIRST Robotics

CASS LAKE - As one of Cass Lake-Bena School's FIRST Robotics teams, the Accelerators recently ended a regional competition on a high note.

Competing in the Great Northern Regional Competition from March 6-9 in Grand Forks, N.D., the all-girls team took 13th place in gameplay before being picked by the No. 5-ranked alliance for elimination matches. Ending in fourth place, the team was none the wiser about the news they would receive at the competition's end.

"We went up to watch the awards and we were all tired because it was a long day," team member Haylei Pierce recalled. "(Announcers) got to the Impact Award and at first, we couldn't believe it was us. There was a lot of emotion after that."
