Unlike most of our league meets, regionals went really well on the robot field. The robot performed perfectly throughout the qualification matches and we ended up ranked second.
As an alliance captain during the elimination matches, our first team picked was 11524 Team Name Wanted: Dead or Alive (a sister ASSiST team) and our second team picked was 8080 Ironclad. During the semifinals our robot had its one hiccup: the hook snagged on the lander during autonomous and broke one of the u-joints on the arm, taking it out of commission for the match. We lost that match, but we still got best out of three and advanced to the finals where we then won twice in a row, taking first place in robot runs.
We won second-place Inspire among other awards and advanced to Worlds!
