Our team won the prestigious Engineering Inspiration Award as well as the award for being an Event Finalist.
After competing in 12 qualification matches, our team was ranked 1st out of 40 teams, making us the first seed alliance captain. For our alliance partners we chose Team 217 ThunderChickens and Team 1701 RoboCubs. It was an intense battle through the playoffs and in the very end we lost the tiebreaker to the 3rd seed alliance in the final matches.
Finishing second awarded us as Event Finalists!!

We played consistently, worked well together to keep our robot at peak performance and held the highest match score in both the qualification and playoff matches. Due to our overall results from both District Events we are ranked 42nd in the state out of 451 teams and qualified to compete at the Michigan State Championship at Saginaw Valley State University along with 139 other teams!
We were honored to win the prestigious Engineering Inspiration Award. This celebrates outstanding success in advancing respect and appreciation for engineering within a team’s school or organization and community.
This was the first time our team has won this award and it truly shows how far we have come as a team and reflects who we are and strive to be! Not just for our members, but for our community as a whole. We love what we do and enjoy sharing that passion!
On April 12th we head out to SVSU to compete again and hope to qualify for the World Championship in St. Louis, MO.
