In the first competition of the 2016 Season, Team 1923 The MidKnight Inventors travelled to Flanders, New Jersey, and competed in the Mt. Olive District Event hosted by Team 11 MORT.
On the first day of competition, The MidKnight Inventors were able to seed second and managed to hold this position until alliance selection. In alliance selection, as Captain, The MidKnight Inventors invited Team 11 Mort and Team 3142 Aperture to join their alliance. We ended the elimination rounds as Quarterfinalists.
At the end of the event the MidKnight Inventors took home the most prestigious award that FIRST has to offer, the Chairman’s award. The Chairman’s award is an award which honors the team that best represents a model for other teams to emulate, and best embodies the purpose and goals of FIRST. This award qualifies us to the Mid-Atlantic Region Championship, held April 14-16 at Lehigh University.
Overall, the MidKnight Inventors had a very successful start to their 2016 Season and want to thank all the parents, mentors, and volunteers who made this possible! We compete next at the Montgomery District, April 8-10 at Montgomery High School.
