Norfolk Qualifier

New Kent Robotics – Team 16537 LOGICoyote competed at the Norfolk Qualifier (January 29). The team was outstanding, winning 3 of their 5 qualifying matches, being selected into the finals tournament and winning one match there. They were also honored with an INSPIRE 2 award and Motivate 2 award. The Inspire awards are the highest awards given at competitions, and is given to “role model FIRST teams…top contenders for many other judged awards and are gracious competitors”. Unfortunately, only two teams advanced from this competition to the District Championship, and Inspire 2 is the 3rd slot for advancement – so team 16537 missed advancement by a whisker! We are all very proud of what these students accomplished this season, and we wish the best to all those teams who advanced!
