We attended our first qualifier on January 6th at the Lexington High School. We had a lot of fun at this competition, and ended up placing 5th out of 19 teams! After the qualification matches, we were picked by the 2nd ranked team, The Canton Gearhounds to form an alliance for the semi-final matches. Unfortunately, our alliance team did not win the semi-final round matches, so we did not advance to the final round.
We had a lot of fun at this competition: we met many new teams, people, and mentors. Additionally, we realized that there were some problems with the autonomous program and the abilities of our robot that we hoped to fix in the weeks before our second qualifier.
