Mililani won the title with a 51-42 victory in the “Toss Up” competition that challenged robotics teams to score points by programming and controlling their robots remotely to place hard plastic and large inflated balls into plastic tubes and in scoring zones on the 12-by-12-foot court. A total of 28 teams from high schools and intermediate schools around the state competed in the event.
