STA Robotics:  Saturday, Feb. 21 the STA Tigers, our middle school robotics team, placed 3rd in the Warren Robotics Tournament at Stoneybrook Middle School.  They also improved their individual driver skills ranking in the State Middle School Team Rankings from 12th place to 8th place out of 47 teams.  This improvement in ranking was enough to earn them an invitation to go to the State Tournament on Saturday 2/28/15 at IUPUI.  Our 6th grade team qualified in an earlier tournament so both teams will be representing St. Thomas.  There are 67 middle and elementary school teams in Indiana and only 30 teams get to participate at the State level.  Congratulations to Darren Richardson, Zach Thrasher, Jack Mahaffey, Xavier Momper, Ian McCormick, John Strenski, and Fritz Ashley for their dedication and creativity throughout our season.
