Last weekend, students, mentors, and parents of Texas Torque traveled to Channelview, Texas to compete for our first competition of the season. Ray, the 2019 robot, competed in 10 qualification matches and ended in rank 13. Texas Torque joined the alliance captain team 5261 Cyber Shock and Team 7494 Circuit Bizurkers to compete in the elimination rounds as the fourth seed alliance. The teams advanced to the finals and ended with a 9-9-1 record. Although there were some problems with the robot, overall Texas Torque performed very well. Congratulations to Team 624 Cryptonite, Team 3834 Crab-bots, and alliance captain Team 5892 Energy HEROs for winning the district championship.
Torque was also very proud to be awarded with the Safety Award- sponsored by Underwriters Laboratories as well as safety captain Victoria Tatman for being awarded “Safety Star of the Day” by Underwriters Laboratories. Additionally, for the second year in a row, the team won Engineering Inspiration Award for our outreach efforts.
