Here is a video of our team in action!
Over the weekend, the Robocubs took the long journey down to Tippecanoe, Indiana. At this competition, we had instant success. We won our first match of the day and scored 4 ranking points! Later that day we hit a rough patch, which brought our record to 3-5. On Sunday, we were ready to win, and we won our remaining 4 matches, gaining 4 ranking points in each. Winning these matches allowed us to move up to 5th place. We ended up being the Captain of the 3rd seed alliance, and we drafted teams 3940 and 3147 to our alliance. We battled to siege the castle and won two quarterfinal matches allowing us to move on. In the semifinals, we faced a strong alliance, but due to a red card on the other alliance in the 3rd match, we moved on. In the finals, we were facing the #1 seeded alliance. We lost the first match 137-117. We won the 2nd match, our strategy worked flawlessly and the other team didn’t weaken the tower. In the third match, we had technical difficulties on two of our robots, and we lost the final battle. This was great practice, and we hope to win at Center Line!
