Post-tournament: A great day of competition was enjoyed by all attending teams at ConnVex! Thanks to Kathy Kentfield and her sponsors and dedicated staff of volunteers, a great time was had by all!
Attending teams were:
The qualifying series included many rounds of competition, and matches were hard fought. Intermittent field controller problems (perhaps from an intermittent connection in the blue alliance box) marred the competition in the initial rounds, but enthusiasm and dedication triumphs over all!
By the end of the qualifying rounds, the ranking were as below:
The alliances yielded 6 trios of teams: 40 (Checkmate), 2078 (Myotonics) and 3197 (Rising Tide) seeded first; 2160 (Team Impulse), 2013 (Team Unlimited) and 839 (Rosie's Little Sis) seeded second; 3360(Autobots), 228 (The Vexperts) and 3019 (Knights) seeded third; 173 (RAGE Jr.), 3082 (McDermko Bombers) and 3097 (The Hockey Team) seeded fourth; 3198 (Vexcellent), 3137 (Robonauts) and 3237 (Chaos Control) seeded fifth; and 177 (Bobcat Robotics), 571 (Team Paragon) and 3458 (Cyber Steel) seeded sixth.
The first and second-place alliances had a bye in the quarter-finals, with alliance 5 moving on to face alliance 1, and alliance 3 moving on to face alliance 2. In the semi-finals, alliances 1 and 2 progressed to the finals.
