THREEPEAT. For the third time, Pitogo High School secured the Best Team Award in the returning Tagisang Robotics Competition organized by DOST-SEI.
Pitogo High School once again dominated the playing field with its do-it-all robot to secure the best win-draw-loss record at the end of eliminations and be crowned as the Best Team, while the duo of Malabon National High School and Caloocan National Science High School emerged as the Best Alliance in the recently-concluded 2019 Tagisang Robotics: Design, Build and Play Competition held on November 19-20 at the Philippine International Convention Center, Pasay City.
Pitogo HS, which won as Best Rookie Team and Best Team in 2013 and again as Best Team in 2014, showed no rust and proved among the 16 school teams that they are still the team-to-beat in the returning robotics competition. However, they failed to advance to the final round where the fourth ranked alliance of Malabon NHS and Caloocan NSHS shocked the top three pairings to emerge as victors.
Pitogo HS “Thunderbots” is composed of students Luke Alexander Pons, Nathaniel Macato, Jamella Marisse Ragasa, and Althea Maratas. As Best Team, they bagged P100,000 cash prize and a trophy.
