The FIRST Robotics competition wrapped up on Saturday.

More than 100 teams from around the Midwest were at the DECC in Duluth over the weekend to showcase their carefully built robots. Denfeld Pit Captain Jarrid Johnson said the competition was fierce, but they had a blast.

"It's our third year," he said. "So it's amazing that out of three years, two of them, we've been able to make it to elimination matches as a second- and third-year team. It's really great."

It was Johnson's second year on the Denfeld team, and his third year in the competition.

Multiple Northland teams made it to the semifinals, including Duluth East, Denfeld, Two Harbors and Hermantown. Lakeview Christian Academy also made it to the quarterfinals, and the Big Fork Backwoods Bots received a Rookie Inspiration Award.
