On Friday 25 January 22 robot teams from six schools gathered at the Forwood Elementary School Cafeteria. We set up four fields for this event to give each team 9 matches of play.
Teams played 99 qualification matches and ate over 18 pizzas.
The Forwood Sharks were on top of the heap, followed closely by the Carrcroft Slithering Snakes at. Maple Lane’s Shadow Knights continued from last week’s event showing off their hanging skills. In the table below you can see how close the top 6 teams were.
|Ranking||Team Name||Average Score|
|2||Carrcroft Slitherig Snakes||9.86|
|3||Maple Lane Shadow Knights||9.71|
After the finals run it was the Lombardy Mac and Lombardy Amazon teams coming from way behind as the 9th and 10th ranked teams taking the event with a 12 point score!
Second place went to the Hanby Beetles and Lombardy Google with a score of 9.
The build award went to the Hanby Hornets for their amazing design with the four bar linkage.
Judges award was to the Carrcroft Slithering Snakes for their very interesting design that let them quickly knock the Bonus Hubs off
For their first outing the Lonbardy teams had a great day with all four teams placing in the top 10. The Harlan Ravens made a great showing at 12th place. They had finished their robot a week ago and came in to the event with just a few minutes of drive time.
