From staff reports

A team of physics students from Creekview High School won first place in the countywide Marine Robotics competition Sept. 24 at Cushing Memorial Park on Lake Allatoona.

Students were challenged to design, build and compete a remotely operated underwater vehicle. The competition required the vehicle to navigate through a maze to retrieve a target, play an underwater tic-tac-toe game and perform the simulated rescue of a disabled submarine.

The team was comprised of Will Aguilar, Seth Brady, Hayden Carroll, Drew Lewandowski, Auggie Oberkrom and Chad Woodruff. The winning students were coached by their physics teacher, Kimberly Geddes.

The competition, sponsored and organized by the Atlanta Squadron Sea Scouts, was open to all Cherokee County high schools.
