We were excited to return to Rhode Island to host an event for the first time since 2019, and this time in a new venue!
Ponaganset High School in North Scituate, RI, was excited to host 30 teams from Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut and of course Rhode Island for the 2023 NE District Rhode Island Event.
Thank you so much to Rhode Island Governor Dan McKee for stopping by to meet with the 5 FRC teams in RI, including Coventry High School's rookie team, FRC 9286. The teams and their families are so grateful for your support!
The winning alliance currently holds the district high score of 170 (with penalties) and a winning team earned the honor of a double blue banner weekend!
