This weekend two of our robotics teams competed in the VA State Robotics Tournament. Both teams were amazing throughout the two day event. During the qualification round team 4303C was 8-1 and 4303E (freshman team) was 9-0, they were the only team undefeated. In the tournament 4303E picked 4303C to be their alliance partner. Unfortunately they lost a heart-breaker in the semifinals.
On a brighter note, for the second time in a row 4303C won the Excellence Award. The Excellence Award is the highest award presented in the VEX Robotics Competition. This award is presented to a team that exemplifies overall excellence in building a high quality VEX robotics program. This team is a strong contender in numerous award categories, design award ranking, tournament qualification matches ranking, robot skills challenge ranking, judges interview, and community outreach.
The Excellence award earns 4303C a trip to the VEX World Robotics Tournament in April. This will be the teams 3rd straight trip.
Please congratulate the following on their accomplishments:
