On March 30th and 31st, The MidKnight Inventors competed at the Montgomery District Event hosted by Team 1403, Cougar Robotics. The first day of competition included 48 qualification matches and finished with an additional 26 on Sunday, after which we were seeded 10th overall. During alliance selection on Sunday, The MidKnight Inventors were welcomed by Team 41 The Robo Warriors, the alliance captain, alongside Team 6016 Tiger Robotics, to join the fifth seeded alliance.
Despite the rough start in the qualifying matches, The MidKnight Inventors came out as Quarterfinalists along with our alliance partners, and received the Excellence in Engineering Award. In addition, we would like to congratulate both our mentor, Mr. Sarath Jaladi, with a Woodie Flowers Finalist Award nomination, and Aadil M, one of our Build Directors, as he advances as a Dean’s List Semi-Finalist to interview at the Mid-Atlantic Region District Championship! Finally, a huge thank you and congratulations goes out to our alliance partners, Team 41 and Team 6016 – we can hardly wait to compete with you next week at the Mid-Atlantic Regional Championship at Lehigh University!
