We just attended our last event playing the 2014 FRC game, Aerial Assist, the Minne Mini-Regional hosted by Team 2169, KingTeC. With our robot on its last legs after being beat up in over a hundred matches this season, the pit crew had a tough time keeping everything working. They even had to replace an entire side of the drive train!
Despite these difficulties, the team did well. We were off to a rough start in qualifiers but ended up being picked by the fourth seed alliance captain, Team 3313, Mechatronics. We then picked Team 1816, Green Machine, and 3202, Knightbots, to complete our alliance. We won our quarter finals, and then had three intense finals matches. We lost 1-2, with just a 21 point split for our last game. Congratulations to our friends on Teams 2169, 3883, 2846, and 3042 on becoming the 2014 champions!
It was also a wonderful opportunity for our rookies, some of whom were attending their first FRC event! It was a great way to end the Aerial Assist game, and a last hurrah for Atlas, our 2014 robot. Thanks to all that came and cheered us on, and thanks to KingTeC for putting on a great competition.
