FTC Championship: Day 3

Day Three

On Thursday we played three matches. In the first match the scissor lift wire came undone and therefore we could not actually score balls. In our second match the robot finally worked properly. We scored in the medium goal in autonomous and scored more in the medium goal later in tele-op and filled the centre goal in end game. Although we did well we still lost the match. In our last match of the day, our autonomous program didn’t work, but we still won the match.

Tonight we had dinner with the teams from the Pacific Northwest, went to the FIRST Opening Ceremonies, and cheered for Katie and Duncan at the Dean’s List Ceremony
