PHHS Shout Out

  • The Official Robot Constructors of America, or ORCA, is the PH robotics team.
  • This year they competed in two district events in Portsmouth and Deep Run.
  • In Portsmouth, their robot, named Sea Panda, made it to quarterfinals and the team’s excitement won them the spirit award.
  • At Deep Run they once again made it to the quarterfinals with an alliance with Hanover and Lee Davis teams. We lost in two close matches that were only points apart from the winning team.
  • Overall they ranked 84th in the Chesapeake region, but their real achievement was growing closer as a team and the ORCA brand!
