2018 Eastern PA Qualifier

This was an amazing event for us. It was our first official qualifying tournament. Not only did we finish qualifying matches undefeated in first place, we went on to be the Winning Alliance Captain and punched our ticket to the PA State Championships in March 2019!

Our efforts leading up to this event was to practice, practice, practice! We decided to not add any more functionality to our robot and instead concentrate on getting a consistent autonomous and endgame since those were where the most points were.

Thanks to our alliance partners, Team 4174, Atomic Theory and Team 14842, our Downingtown Area Robotics teammates, Spygears!

2018 Oxford Open

This was our first scrimmage event where we were able to compete but also be able to figure out our robot and how a tournament works. We did fairly well for a rookie team, finishing in 8th place out of 18, with a record of 3 wins and 2 losses. We had good runs, even though we had problems. Our drive team did a good job and were able to recover from mistakes quickly. Even though we were nervous, we did fine.
