To start out, we went to the FIRST Tech Challenge Orange Qualifier at Orange County High School for our first tournament. We went through the competition matches, doing well as we climbed through the ranks. We received many nominations for awards, ultimately winning the Motivate Award.
We competed at the FIRST Tech Challenge Battlefield Haymarket Qualifier at Battlefield High School, making it to the finals after being ranked first at the end of qualifications. In the finals, we led our alliance to victory, winning it all on the competition field. At that qualifier, we were given the First Place Inspire Award, which displays all-around achievement, so we are advancing to the US Virginia FIRST States Tournament.
We also competed at the FTC Centreville Qualifier, were we did well both on and off of the field, making our way into the finals once again.
Wanting to help out a neighboring team with their tournament, several members of our team volunteered at the FTC Reston Qualifier. Spending the day resetting fields and fetching teams, we did whatever we could to be of assistance.
