The Atlantis Inc. remotely-operated vehicle team of teenagers from South Whidbey is now an international champion.

The group won first place in the high school division at the Black Sea ROV International Competition in Romania, to which the Freeland-based team was invited after placing at the MATE ROV Competition in 2013.

A welcome party is being planned for Atlantis’ return to Whidbey on Friday, Aug. 29, with the time to be determined.
