The Secret City Wildbots, an Oak Ridge team, is competing at the FIRST Robotics Palmetto Regional in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, this week.
There were practice matches on Thursday, and qualification rounds on Friday and Saturday. Elimination rounds are scheduled for Saturday afternoon. The three-day competition is from March 2-4.

On Friday, after the second qualifying match, Agle said the Secret City Wildbots, Team 4265, were ranked 27th of 62, having lost the first match and won the second. There were four additional matches scheduled on Friday and two on Saturday for Team 4265. Those matches would determine who qualifies for the elimination rounds on Saturday afternoon, Agle said.
