2019 FIRST Houston World Championship

August 29, 2019 in Outreach by Texas Torque

Texas Torque’s last event of the 2018 season was the Houston World Championship at the George R. Brown Convention Center and Minute Maid Park. This was the biggest event of the year with over 400 teams attending.

Texas Torque was in the Hopper Division along with 67 other teams to compete for a chance to play during Einstein rounds. After many successful qualification matches, Texas Torque ended with an 8th rank and a 7-5-0 win-loss-tie record. Texas Torque picked team 4020 Cyber Tribe, 4063 TriKzR4Kidz, and team 3635 Flying Legion to complete the 8th seeded alliance.  During the playoffs, our alliance was eliminated in the quarterfinals.

Congratulations to the World Champion finalists in the Turing division alliance! We would also like to congratulate team 973 Greybots, team 1323 Madtown Robotics, team 5026 Iron Panthers, and team 4201 the Vitruvian Bots for winning the Houston World Championship! We would also like to congratulate team 1902 Exploding Bacon for their induction into the Hall of Fame.
