Post-tournament: A great day of competition was enjoyed by all attending teams! Thanks to Betty Lauer and her dedicated staff of volunteers from Quinsigamond Community College, Verizon, FIRST (and many others), things ran smoothly, well and on-schedule!
Attending teams were:
The qualifying series included many rounds of competition, and performances improved marked as the day progressed. Feverish activity in the pits paid off, as teams perfected competition capabilities that may have been only theoretical when they arrived. It was incredible to see this process unfold!
By the end of the qualifying rounds, the ranking were as below:
The alliances yielded 6 pairs of teams: 2013 (Team Unlimited) and 3456 (roboNatick) seeded first, 571 (Team Paragon) and 3237 (None Yet) seeded second, 3377 (Red Line Robotics) and 3426 (Red Devil Robotics) moving up to seed third, 129 (Junior Chaos) and 3328 (Balance Rock) moving up to seed fourth, 2044 (Angelbots) and 839 (Rosie Robotics) moving up to seed fifth, and 130 (more Chaos) and 131 (Chaos) seeding 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. In the finals, alliance 1 (Team Unlimited and roboNatick) came out ahead after hard-fought matches with alliance 2 (Team Paragon and None Yet).
The medal and award presentations followed, and the Not Yet team (3237) was revealed to now be called Chaos Control. The awards were as follows:
Runner-up Alliance: Team Paragon (571) and Chaos Control (formerly known as None Yet, 3237)
Winning Alliance: Team Unlimited (2013) and roboNatick (3456)
The FVC Connect award was received by Rosie Robotics (839).
The FVC Amaze award was received by roboNatick (3456).
The FVC Innovate award was received by Chaos Control (formerly known as None Yet, 3237).
The FVC Think award was received by the Angelbots (2044).
The FVC Inspire award was received by Team Unlimited (2013).
Then the teams adjourned to pack up their pit areas, say goodbye to old and new friends, and head out to celebrate an excellent day of competition!
