The Freeport High School hosted the fifth annual Freeport Robotics Competition, where 35 robotics teams from 18 schools/community groups from around Long Island/NYC/Westchester competed. This was the largest event the district has ever hosted.

Freeport had six teams compete, including three high school teams (FHS Club Team A, FHS Club Team B and FHS Club Team D), which were led by adviser Mr. Kevin Harrison; two J.W. Dodd Middle School teams (Dodd Club A and Dodd Club B), which were led by advisers Mrs. Kristen Santamaria and Mrs. Jennifer Cotrone; and a Caroline G. Atkinson Intermediate School team (Atkinson Club A), which was led by adviser Mr. Matt Yatsalya. Each club had nearly 20 student members.  

FHS Club Team D scored the highest out of the district and were quarterfinalists in the tournament. They are also ranked 28th in New York State. In two weeks, the team will find out whether or not they will be invited to attend the state championships in March at East Rockaway Junior-Senior High School.
