Congrats to TechFire for another amazing performance this past weekend at the Lenape Seneca District competition. 225 dominated the qualification rounds and emerged as #2 seed going in to the alliance selections. With alliance partners 203 TUFF and Team 1403 Cougar Robotics, TechFire easily won two quarter-final matches to press on to the the semi-final rounds. After two very close matches against a tough alliance of Team 316 LuNaTeCs , 2494 Hamilton West Robotics, and 2729 Storm Robotics, Techfire just missed another shot at a blue banner. Final results here.
In addition to an amazing performance on the field, 225 was honored with the Innovation in Control Award sponsored by Rockwell Automation. This award "celebrates an innovative control system or application of control components to provide unique machine functions." Great job 225--very well-deserved!
With invaluable experience and lessons learned from both district competitions, 225 will be in top form and ready for the best performance of the season at the upcoming Mid-Atlantic Regional Competition April 11-13 at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA. GO TECHFIRE!
Congrats to TechFire 225 for an outstanding performance at the Springside Chestnut Hill District Championship.
