We participated from March 24-26 in our first FRC Competition of the year: the Sacramento Regional at UC Davis. Prior to the event, the team has worked more than 16 hours a week since early January to design and build a robot from scratch aided by our sponsors: Round Table Pizza, Blue River Technology, American Prototype & Production, Lockheed Martin, Google, and Menlo-Atherton High School. Competing against 42 other teams, we made it to the quarterfinals as part of the 5th seed alliance with Team 1160 “Titanium Robotics” from San Marino High School and Team 701 “RoboVikes” from Vanden High School. We finished our qualifying rounds ranked 21 with a win-loss record of 5-7 before losing 2-0 in the quarterfinals to the 4th seeded alliance. We also won the Gracious Professionalism® Award, an award granted to the team that demonstrates a competitive spirit while maintaining respect and empathy towards other teams both on and off the field!
With the experience gained from the Sacramento Regional, we hope you support us at the upcoming Silicon Valley Regional on April 8-10!
