Hello again from The Automatons!
10k was a wild ride. We played hard, worked hard, and definitely built hard. Unfortunately, we didn’t qualify for championships, but after ranking 19th with a 4-4-0 record we were the 9th pick for playoffs, which landed us on the 8th-seeded alliance with Blaze Robotics and QWERTY Robotics. Despite being the lowest-ranking alliance, we managed to secure a 2-0 win against the #1 seeded alliance! However, we went down in the semi-finals (again) due to our robot losing connection during a tiebreaker match.

Besides performing a lot better than we did at Northern Lights, we also won the Innovation in Control award for our spectacular shooting mechanism that made Omnibus the best shooter there. Those that weren’t busy building or programming presented for Chairman’s and Dean’s List and did extensive scouting throughout the matches. Also, ScotBot did a bit of dancing and we got a visit from our principal, Dr. Winston Tucker!

Videos of Omni in action can be found on our YouTube page. We’re currently planning a car wash on May 13th to raise money for next year, so stop by Highland from 9-2 if you want to support us (or if your car just needs a wash).
Thanks for keeping up with us!
