Smithtown Central School District, along with FIRST Robotics Team 810, hosted a FIRST Lego League robotics competition on Jan. 21 and 22. Twenty-eight teams competed at each of the three different sessions.

The district’s three rookie FIRST Lego League teams participated in the competition. The Accompsett All Stars (Accompsett Middle School) coached by Accompsett Middle School technology teacher Mike Colletta, the Electric Brick Breakers (Great Hollow Middle School) coached by Great Hollow technology teacher Connor Kelly and Quake Robotics (Nesaquake Middle School) coached by Nesaquake Middle School technology Sean Tomasello finished in 13th, eighth and second place, respectively. 
The Quake Robotics Team took first place during the alliance round and will move on to the Long Island Championships at Longwood High School on March 4. 

The Smithtown Robotics Team had more than 15 students volunteering at each event and helping to run the competition. The volunteers served as judges, queuers, timekeepers, field resetters and referees.
