The 2016 Season was an interesting one for the Friarbots. We saw a transition from many of our past seniors who were extremely integral in previous seasons, and a whole facility move right in the middle of build season! And yet, Team 3309 still prevailed by doubling our blue banner count through winning the Chairman's Award for the first time ever and taking a Regional Win with Code Orange and Team 6220 at the OC Regional! Every single year since we were formed in 2009-2010, there has been some small success or advancement on our team, and the 2016 Season was no exception for the Friarbots.
The Friarbots are very proud to release our 2016 Season Recap which was shown to our entire team on Sunday, June 5th, to both our current students/parents and several alumni families, too. It was a nostalgic and bittersweet moment for all of us, and yes, many tears were shed when this video was played
Please enjoy this great recap from Matt, our media guy, who stepped up big time this year by making every single Friarbots production into a work of film worthy for the big screen. ... See MoreSee Less
This is our other co-president, Megan Guttieri. Megan has done a fantastic job leading our team through the season and is constantly reaching out to the younger members of our team to get them involved. She has broken incredible grounds for our outreach and our awards team by leading the Woodie Flowers and Chairman’s submission, in addition to leading most outreach events. She defeated all odds obstructing her from meeting her goals and is an inspiration to all the students on 3309. She has been a great addition to our team and it wouldn’t be the same without her.
Megan will be starting at UC Berkeley this year, but we are sure she will stick around next year to see our team grow. ... See MoreSee Less
