2023 District Championship

From April 6-8 our team competed at the FIRST Chesapeake District Championship, with the 59 best teams from the district.  With a tough schedule of opponents, we were only expected to win one match.  Instead, we won six. Throughout the event, we encountered many complications which caused us to work together to deal with them. One example was when an opposing robot accidentally pushed another robot into electronics panel.  We quickly rebuilt it, tested it, and won the next match.  In addition, we had an unexpected catastrophic collapse of our arm mechanism 10 minutes before another match. We had to balance the repair with preparing for the probable situation of not being able to compete. We fixed our arm just as we were coming onto the field. As before, we won that match. We left the event learning much from other teams as well as our own experiences, hoping to visit the district championship next year.
