Girl Power 2014

We competed at Girl Power this weekend for the second year in a row. We had some trouble with our shooter because there were problems with our gearbox after being used all season. Despite this, our autonomous worked especially well, and when we weren’t working on the shooter, which was all but two matches, we were able to truss the ball. Our final record was 6-1, and we were the top-ranked alliance captain! We chose teams 222, 4637, and 3974, and because there were only fourteen teams at the event, we went straight to semi-finals. We moved onto finals in two matches. Finals, however, was tough. After losing our first match, we were determined to win the next one to stay in, but somehow our robot turned itself off, or another team did by accident, so we were dead halfway through the match. Even though there were some difficulties, it was an exciting day.

It was also Mr. Joe’s birthday yesterday, so we celebrated with a Star Wars cake. Happy Birthday Mr. Joe!

Duel on the Delaware 2014

We competed at Duel on the Delaware, hosted by MOE and the Lunatecs, this past weekend in Carney’s Point, NJ. Rosie did great during the matches- her autonomous was beautiful. Our record after the Qualification Matches was 3-2. Although our rank was 10th, we were not chosen for alliance selection, but we were glad that we were the first backup robot. Congrats to the winning teams!

Also, congratulations to the team who brought in about 2,000 pounds of books for the book drive. That was truly impressive!
