Governor’s School wins 2nd place in robotics competition

The Chesapeake Bay Governor’s School (CBGS) won second place overall in the Ranger Division of the Mid-Atlantic Regional MATE ROV Underwater Robotics Competition held at Old Dominion University (ODU) on Saturday, May 4. This is the first year CBGS has competed in the Ranger category, the highest and most competitive level offered at the competition. Governor’s School students also won Best Product Demonstration, which signifies their robot performed the best. Students also were judged in several marketing categories.

CBGS students Roman Cutler and Tara Gill (Lancaster High School), Izaak Hagy (Northumberland High School), and Jaime Beazley and Gabriel Carlton (Essex High School) attended the competition with CBGS teacher mentors Greg Dorsey (physics) and Julia Jones (mathematics). Other students who contributed to the CBGS robotics team but could not attend the competition were Washington and Lee High School students Lydia Wallace, Sydney Bakir, and Brittany-Blake Sandy.

The Marine Advanced Technology Education (MATE) organization hosts 37 regional Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV) competitions around the world. For more information, visit or contact CBGS Robotics Coach Greg Dorsey ().
