We would also like to thank Mrs. Temple for helping us stay focused when we made all our signs on Saturday and for spending most of the day Sunday doing the back-breaking work of vacuuming while most of the team was tied up washing and drying.

The RoboChiefs would like to thank all of our corporate and individual sponsors for allowing us to achieve another District Event win.

Thank you to The Item for continuing coverage of our local FIRST® teams. Read all about the Boston District Event here:
- Nashoba takes home second FIRST district win of season
[Detail Correction: at the WPI District Event referred to as the earlier season win, Nashoba was actually picked by the 6th ranking alliance captain, Rosie Robotics, before going on to win that event]
- FIRST at BU: Clinton & Nashoba compete
The team very proudly accepted their third Industrial Design Award out of three District Event opportunities to win. It’s a perfect record! Lots of hard work and dedication went into this award, it was great to be recognized all three times.
