Texas Torque participated in the Week 4 District Del Rio Competition this past weekend alongside nearly 40 other teams. After a great series of qualification matches, the team finished Saturday night at Rank 1 excited for the day to come. On Sunday, despite multiple technical problems, the team finished the rest of the qualification matches with a record of a 10-2-0 (wins-ties-losses) and earned 22 Qualification Points. Torque’s final alliance partnered them with close-by Team 5892 Energy HEROs from Houston, Texas and Team 5894 J.E.H.S. Cyber Jags from Edinburg, Texas.
Elimination matches were tough but the team was able to make it to the semifinals with our great alliance members. Congratulations to the winners; Team 7521 Ultimate Robotics, Team 7088 Robodogs, and finally alliance captain Team 6377 Howdy Bots!
While disappointed by the robot’s results, the team was able to end the competition on a high note since we won the Chairman’s Award! This has continued our four year Chairman’s winning streak! Be sure to check out our chairman’s video below:
