Over the long weekend, Team N had an excellent time at a competition hosted by Choate. Three team members, Abby, Ken, and Mac went along with Jack from Team A, who brought an extra set of hands and scouting experience! We did well, winning 4 out of 6 matches and placing 17th overall out of 49 teams! Mac, our amazing driver, controlled one of the fastest robots there. Through moving mobile goals (cones) into point zones and playing intense defense, we were able to score highly while working with our alliances. We had a few tricky situations but Mac was able to get out of them with help from the coach, Abby, and strategist, Ken. Although we did not make it to the elimination round, we are proud of what we accomplished with a smaller team! We learned so much at the competition along with meeting some other very nice teams and grew stronger together. Stay tuned for an article about last Saturday’s competition where Team A was in West Haven to practice before they head to regionals on March 3rd and 4th!
We are happy to say the A team, after the January 27th competition at North Andover, has qualified for the Southern New England Regional Competition! The competition was attended by both Team A and the newly named Team N (N for New) and we both did an amazing job. Both made it into the elimination rounds and an exciting match took place where Team A faced off against Team N! In the end, after a close battle, Team A took the victory and continued on to the final match which got them a place in the regional competition! Stay tuned for reports on future competitions and follow Team A to Regionals!
