Minnesota North Star Regional 2017

From April 6-8 we competed at the Minnesota North Star Regional in Minneapolis, MN. We played matches 10, 18, 25, 40, 50, 56, 62, and 71. We won 7 out of our 8 qualification matches and were the captain of the number 2 seeded alliance in the playoffs. Our alliance partners were #2472 The Centurions and #2883 F.R.E.D. We made it to the semifinals where we were eliminated in the tiebreaker match.  In the awards ceremony our team won the Chairman’s Award which qualified us for the world championships held in St. Louis, MO. We are very excited to compete at champs this year, and good luck to all teams competing!

Iowa Regional 2017

From March 22 to the 25 we competed at the FRC Iowa Regional in Cedar Falls, IA. We played in match 5, 10, 20, 34, 44, 53, 59, 72, and 81. The robot performed well and by the end of the qualification matches we were ranked 15. We competed on the seventh seed alliance with alliance captain #2081 Icarus and partners #2040 DERT. We were eliminated during the quarterfinals. Following this experience, we know how to optimize our robot’s functions for the Minnesota North Star Regional, which we will be attending next week. We look forward to seeing all the teams there!
