We Won States!

We competed at States in Saginaw at SVSU (Saginaw Valley State University). We played on Ford Field, where we placed 15th. We were on the 3rd Alliance with the The Gems, Team 4362; and Lightning Robotics, Team 862. Our alliance was able to win Ford Field, which was difficult itself, but we also went on to the Intradivisional State Championship Field! We played 3 semifinal matches and 5 matches finals matches, which is more than FIRST had even anticipated for in their field management system! Luckily for us though, we won, and we are now State Champions! Who are we? Goon Squad!

We completed A-bot!
We completed our A-bot for the 2019 competition season. The bot was put in the bag at approximately 11:35 Eastern standard time. Before we bagged N tagged we weighed approximately 110 pounds with all of our components on the robot, except we did not have our hatch manipulator attached to the robot at the time. Overall it was a good build season, and we look forward to the upcoming competition season.
