Over the weekend, MegaHurtz Robotics went to the St. Joseph District FIRST event at St. Joe High School. There they competed against 39 other teams from across the state. Buchanan's MegaHurtz Robotics FRC Team 5056 is made up of 12 students and six adult mentors. The team competed in 12 qualification matches and finished ranked #7/40 with 8 wins and 4 losses. During playoff alliance selection, the #3 seed invited MegaHurtz to move up. The new alliance did an amazing job first losing quarter final match one, winning two but unfortunately losing three which knocked them out of the competition.
After the conclusion of match play, specific awards are given to teams in several distinct categories. MegaHurtz is the proud recipient of the Quality Award which:
"Sponsored by Motorola Solutions Foundation celebrates machine robustness in concept and fabrication. The winning team demonstrates these characteristics in many ways from planning through execution. Building the robot is only part of their success and judges recognize them as a quality example to others."
The award language reads:
"Clean wiring with easy ACCESS PANELS for service instantly caught the judge's eyes. Their INTAKE SENSORS maintain power cell spacing no matter the FREQUENCY of their shooting. This clean and robust robot sets them up for MEGA success. Congratulations to team number 5056, MegaHurtz Robotics."
MegaHurtz will be at the Gull Lake District event this weekend. March 13 and 14.
