No bad seats for THIS sporting event!

Thirty-six robots, 14 from off-campus, participated in Saturday’s “S.W.O.R.D. Fights 3: Revenge of the Wedge,” sponsored by the Student Wildcats of Robotic Design in Penn College’s Field House. The event attracted eight “antweight” (1-pound) and 28 “beetleweight” (3-pound) competitors, facing off in a knockout-style tourney. Organizers are already organizing a similar competition for the fall semester.
