On Saturday, May 8, 2021, the Bethpage High School Robotics Team, Regal Eagles, FIRST Robotics Competition Team #2869 completed another remarkable season. The Regal Eagles earned the Chairman's Award at the New York/Quebec Regional Event.  The Chairman's Award is the MOST prestigious award presented by FIRST and is awarded to a team that best embodies the cornerstones of FIRST and represents a model for other teams to emulate.  This is the third time that the Regal Eagles have earned the Chairman's Award (2017, 2020).  No other team has ever won the Chairman's Award on Long Island in successive years.  Under normal circumstances, the recipient of the Chairman's Award would have had the opportunity to participate at FIRST Robotics Competition World Championships.

Suchitha Channapatna was also the recipient of the Dean's List Award for individual achievement. This marks the third time that the Regal Eagles have had a Dean's List Award Recipient (Samuel Perkowsky, 2016 and Morgan Heller, 2018).

Congratulations to the Regal Eagles on their accomplishments this year as well as to their senior team captain, Sidh Chhabra, and mentors, Mr. Zabell and Mr. LaSpina.
