We competed at the Diamond State Championship on Saturday, and had an absolutely amazing day. We had no matches where we forgot to plug in the battery, turn on the robot, or start autonomous, etc. Our only mechanical issues were losing a wheel during our first match, and the scissors lift got stuck once. The only part of our design that we want to change is our crate flipper, because it is not as efficient as it could be.
We were undefeated during the qualifying rounds, and were in first place for alliance selection. Our high score for the day was 366 points, scored in conjunction with team 3539, Say Watt?. We selected team 4240, the TechnoClovers, who have twice this year set the high score, and 4856, Minnie MASH. We were, however, up against a very tough alliance who eventually won the championship after defeating us in the semi- finals.
We once again won the Motivate Award. Congratulations to the TechnoClovers on winning the Inspire Award, and team 7, the Technical Sheep on winning the championship!
