Finley’s robotics team, Men in Black, competed in the Glen Cove 2015 Southern New York State VRC Qualifier on Jan. 10.

The competition was the first hosted by the district and featured the Men in Black competing against students from schools across Long Island, including Locust Valley, Massapequa, Wantagh and Hauppauge. During the event, the teams from each school competed for several different achievements, including tournament champions, the Excellence Award and the Sportsmanship Award.  Unfortunately, the Men in Black were not victorious; however, Principal Nelson Iocolano said he was proud of what they have accomplished thus far. 

“I’m so impressed by our team’s ability to work together, and how they’re able to overcome certain challenges and setbacks while competing. They truly exemplify the best our school community has to offer,” Iocolano said. “I’m especially thankful to team advisor Lisa Pignataro, and all those in our school community who worked so hard in the planning and preparation of the competition. It was truly an example of a school community coming together to support our students.”
