Texas Torque again attended the Lone Star Regional during the 2013 competition season. After some technical difficulties on Thursday, Texas Torque began picking up steam on Friday and thanks to the drive team’s skill were the only undefeated team at the end of the day. On Saturday, however, one of our opposing alliances managed to sneak some extra points and brought us down to the number two team in the final rankings. The quarter-finals were intense, but after suffering another set of communication errors, we were eliminated after the second quarter-final match. Even though we were disappointed at the loss of the regional, Texas Torque won the “Rockwell Automation: Innovation in Control Award” bringing our spirits up. Now that we know what we need to be working on, Texas Torque is ready to come back with an even more powerful bot at the Bayou Regional!
