Bowdoin's RoboCup soccer team advanced to the quarterfinals in the 2010 RoboCup World Championship Games in Singapore, but that would be as far as the Northern Bites would go.
They were defeated by rUNSWift, the team from the University of New South Wales, Australia, by a score of 3-0.
"The tournament didn't go as expected for us, but it is still great to be in the top eight in the world and the team really responded well to some serious challenges," says Eric Chown, the team's advisor.
All four American teams — Bowdoin, Carnegie Mellon, University of Texas and Penn — made the quarterfinals; CMU and Texas advanced to the semifinals.
