On April 1st and 2nd, The MidKnight Inventors competed at the Montgomery District Event hosted by Team 1403, Cougar Robotics. The first day of competition included 54 qualification matches and finished with an additional 22 on Sunday, after which we ranked 34th in the event. During alliance selection on Sunday, The MidKnight Inventors were welcomed by Team 75 RoboRaiders, the alliance captain, and Team 25 Raider Robotix, to join the eighth seeded alliance.
Despite the rough start in the qualifying matches, The MidKnight Inventors came out as Montgomery District Champions along with our alliance partners, and received the Entrepreneurship Award. In addition, we would like to congratulate our 2017 Woodie Flowers Finalist Award Nominee, Dr. Ruth Kamen; we are beyond proud of everything she has brought to this team since its founding. Finally, a huge thank you and congratulations goes out to our alliance partners, Team 75 and Team 25 – we can hardly wait to compete with you next week at the Mid-Atlantic Regional Championship at Lehigh University!
