     SPC Levelland claims title at robot competition  

    REESE CENTER – The Saw team from South Plains College Levelland campus was crowned champions in the Tin Man XII Robotics Class Robot Battle. The event was held Friday (May 4) in Building Six on the Reese Center campus.

    The contest featured 12 teams representing students in the electronics technology program from three SPC campuses and three teams from Plainview High School.

    The teams from Levelland were Saw, comprised of Erica Almager of Levelland and Martin Rodriguez of Plainview; Massacre, comprised of Kyle Jennings of Farwell, Gary McDuffey of Levelland and Hunter Hawkins of Lubbock; and Hellraiser, composed of McDuffey, Almanger, Rodriguez, Jennings and Hawkins. The win marked the first victory for SPC Levelland since fall 2011.

    The teams from SPC Plainview Center were Botmobile, featuring Richard Medina and Pablo Ramirez, both of Plainview; The Reaper, featuring John Sweet and Michael Bowden, both of Plainview; and JAN977ST, featuring Alahandra Leon, Jason James and Nick Arrizola, all of Plainview. JAN977ST was the first walking robot entry in the contest.

    The teams from SPC Reese Center were Electric Manaray, featuring James Rardin of Odessa and Hunter Heatherington of Paradise; Snow White, featuring Robert Henderson of Midland and Timothy Mahan of Lubbock; and War Machine, featuring Michael Crews and Carlos Castillo, both of Lubbock.

     The teams from Plainview High School were Son-uva-Digger, composed of Katie Cox, Anna Jimenez, Malorie Garcia and Mikalalea Quintero; Category 5, comprised of Jamie Evrett and David Ramos; and R.O.B. Return of Bowser, comprised of Aaron Thompson, Antonio Zambrano and Angel Ramos. The Son-uva-Digger, an all-female team, battled Saw of Levelland for the championship.

    A panel of three judges was comprised of Andrew Ruiz, Registrar at SPC Levelland; Manuel Prieto, maintenance supervisor of SPC Plainview Center; and Gabriel Honesto, a 2008 SPC alum and program graduate.

    The Electronic and Manufacturing Technologies Program includes the Robotics course as part of the electronics curriculum. Industrial robotics is emphasized throughout the curriculum.
