The Duluth East robotics teams, the Daredevils, got their first chance to compete this season at the Minne-Mini Regional Competition in Prior Lake.
This year's squad has 16 new members, as well as many returning members.
The challenge for this pre-season competition was the same as last year's competition season: "Rebound Rumble." Teams built robots that are judged on how well they shoot a basketball into a hoop.
The Daredevils came in second place overall and were also awarded the "Gracious Professionalism Award."
