Four NightHawk Robotics teams traveled to Irvine to compete against 36 teams in our fourth and final regular season tournament of the year playing this year’s game “Nothing but Net”. This would be Team 569A’s last chance to qualify for the State Championship.
After 5 qualifying matches all 4 of our teams were in the playoffs.
Team 569D was the 3rd seeded alliance captain and chose 569A to be their partner.
Team 569C was chosen by the 1st seeded alliance.
Team 569B was the alliance captain on the 4th seeded alliance.
Team 569B was eliminated in the semifinals by our very own 569C and the rest of the 1st seeded alliance.
Team 569C and 569A & 569D breezed through opposite sides of the bracket to face each other in the finals. Once again we were going to have cannibalize ourselves to win the championship.
In the best of 3 format it took all 3 matches to decide the tournament champion.
In the end Team 569A & 569D were victorious and WON THE TOURNAMENT.
Team 569A has now qualified for the CA State Championship.
Team 569D won their second tournament of the season!
Now all 4 NightHawk Robotics teams have qualified for the CA State Championship which is on March 12th at the Pasadena Convention Center.
