On March 5, the Los Alamos FIRST Robotics Team 4153—Project Y took second place in the FIRST Robotics Competition Hub City Regional in Lubbock, Texas. The tournament involved 42 high school teams competing from eight states and included international teams from China.
“This is our third year and at each competition we have done better,” said David Phillips, lead mentor. “This was a challenging competition with a lot of intense action on the field. The students and mentors did a great job to design, build and compete with our robot over the past six weeks.”
The team finished the qualifying round of matches in 10th place overall. The teams play matches in alliances that consist of three robots, and for the elimination matches Los Alamos was allied with Team 4063 from Del Rio, Texas and Team 1801 from Kountze, Texas.
The drive team faced stiff completion as they fought their way through the quarterfinals and semifinals against the higher ranked alliances in a series of best of three matches.
In the final match, the team fell in the third game.
