Our elated team dashed back to the pits to celebrate!
Congratulating the rookie Radical Jays on their strong 2nd-place finish.
During the following ceremony, our team accepted the District Creativity Award sponsored by Xerox. The Creativity Award “celebrates creativity in design, use of component, or strategy of play,” as determined by the blue-shirted judges who observed our team/robot throughout the competition.

Here’s our 1st place trophy!
Each winning team member and mentor received a medal, too!
We continued cheering as other teams received their awards. We especially congratulate and thank our alliance partners: RoboDawgs #288, Truck Town Thunder #68, and Freeland Fabricators #5166!
With God’s grace, it IS possible to go from being ranked 32nd of 40 robots to WINNING the competition in a matter of a few hours!
We invited the Radical Jays to join us for one more photo with our banner. What an amazing conclusion to our crazy rollercoaster weekend!
