FTC 16537 LOGICoyote competed in the Newport News Qualifier event today. The team went 4-1 during the qualifying matches and was ranked 7th among 31 teams. We were selected by the #4 alliance into the elimination tournament, but did not advance after the semi-final round.
The judges awarded our team first place Design award and second place Connect award.
More than anything else, I was proud of the way this team bonded and competed together while maintain gracious professionalism.
It was an excellent day for a rookie team at their first competition.
