Team Paragon was recently one of 36 teams to compete at Western New England University at the F.I.R.S.T (
For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics qualifier. 

Shoutout to our wonderful advisors, Mr. Guzauckus and Peter Moore. After the first day and a half of the preliminary rounds, Team Paragon (Team 571) was selected by the Bobcat Robotics team to compete with them and Ledyard High in the Saturday afternoon final rounds. The Team won in the quarter finals and semi finals, but lost in the finals, placing Second 🥈overall!
