We entered our second regional of 2015, 10,000 Lakes, hosted at the Williams Arena of the University of Minnesota, and left pleased with ourselves.
We ended qualifiers as the seventeenth place team out of the sixty-three that entered. We started eliminations as a part of the eighth place alliance, and worked our way to fifth place before our time ended while we were down in points, where our alliance average was 97.5 and the average of the fourth and third place alliances were 101.00.
Our alliance may not have gotten first, but our team still had it’s time on the big stage after we won the Industrial Design Award sponsored by General Motors!
There is a story we must tell whenever we speak of this award. We believe this got the judges attention, allowing us to be considered, and eventually helping us win the award.
You can find the story here.
