What a day at the Pine Tree Regional!

Today was the first day of qualifying matches. Similar to our experience in Hartford, we had a difficult start, riddled with problems to solve, and were ranked in the bottom 5. Through the day, the students rallied and worked on the bot and strategy. We rose through the ranks up to SIXTH at one point, but settled in at 12th at the end of today. That was terrific and well-noticed. But that wasn’t all! The team won the prestigious Entrepreneurship Award!!! The announcer spoke about the judges comments, one of which was that it is very rare that this award goes to such a young team. I am so very proud of these students! Tomorrow brings the last of the qualifying rounds and the playoffs. Go Gearheads!
