Hartselle High School fielded robotics teams for the first time at the Alabama Robotics Competition at the University of Alabama, but the school did not perform like rookies.

One of Hartselle’s teams took first place with a perfect score, successfully completing all of their challenges faster than their competitors. Another Hartselle High team finished fourth place in the high school division. The school was the only one to place two teams in the top five.
