The Citrus Circuits robotics team isn’t resting on its laurels.

Having made it to the final four of last year’s FIRST Robotics world championships, the team has been competing locally during the fall and took first place earlier this month at the CalGames.

Competing against 31 other teams, Citrus Circuits placed first and won the NASA-sponsored Autonomous Mode Challenge Award, complete with $1,000 from NASA that the team can put toward regional entry fees next spring.

Citrus Circuits is the Davis team made up of students from Da Vinci Charter Academy, Davis High School and Holmes, Emerson and Harper junior highs. The team is using the robot made for last year’s competitions and these results won’t have any bearing on the 2014 competition, which will feature a new game and all-new robot.

“But it does help us train our new team members for the 2014 season,” said team spokeswoman Alexis Gilbert.
The 2014 season will kick off Jan. 4, she added.
