Congrats to the Trobots for being captain of team #3 Here is our team - 5013 - 1764 - 5147

Semi Number One: 3:15 Bot is out, still loading programming. Lining up.

A loss, the team is back working.

Semi Number Two: Close game but came up short. Proud of the team! On to the next event.

Match 1 - A strong showing and WIN but it came at a cost. Arm broke at the last second of the climb and the team is working to get it put back together. Looks like they are coming out, Sidewinder is back on the field.

Match 2 - Well, something is wrong. Hard loss. But taking a time out and the team is working.

Match 3 - A win, thanks to great partners. We move on and the team is hard at work.
