This past weekend, our very own Thunder-Bots competed at the FLL Ohio State Championships held at the Wright State University Nutter Center. The Thunder-Bots earned the first place Gracious Professionalism award. This award recognizes a team whose members show each other and other teams respect at all times. They recognize that both friendly competition and mutual gain are possible, on and off the playing field.
