This past weekend our team went down to Del Rio to compete with our robot, Prosperity. Our first day started off slow, but we were quickly able to pick ourselves up, moving up the ranks fast. We had a few fixes we had to make throughout the day with programming and our hatch intake, but soon enough our drive team had Prosperity carrying hatches and throwing cargo like it was nothing. The day ended with high spirits, lots of group photos, and team bonding over dinner.
Our team went into the second day starting off strong with Prosperity working like a dream. However, our team unfortunately didn't make it to quarter finals. But in the end, we were able to leave with the Team Spirit Award in our hands, our heads held high, and many great memories.
After our build season ended, it was time for our robot, Prosperity to head to its first competition! Now, we did not have the best start, with many of our mechanisms not working properly, but we never let that slow us down. In between each match, our team worked to get each and every part of our robot working as they should. At the end of the qualification matches, Prosperity was running around doing exactly as it was meant to do, and we couldn't be happier. As our qualification matches came to a close, the RoboSpartans finished at rank 19, later becoming a part of the 6th alliance with teams 7492 and 4328. Unfortunately, our alliance was eliminated in the quarterfinals, but we had a lot of fun and gained a lot of experience! As the day came to a close, the RoboSpartans won the Team Spirit Award for the second time, as well as runner-ups for the Safety Award! The team had a blast at our first event and we can't wait to compete at the FIT Del Rio District Event! See you then!
