On Saturday March 11th, The MidKnight Inventors traveled to Flanders, New Jersey to start off our 2017 FIRST Steamworks season and compete in the Mt. Olive District Event hosted by Team 11, MORT & Team 193, MORT Beta.
The competition started off with qualification matches on Saturday, where we ranked 23rd leading up to alliance selection and play offs on Sunday. The MidKnight Inventors were invited by Team 25 Raider Robotix, the alliance captain, and 303 The TEST Team to join the the 2nd seeded alliance.
By the end of the event, The MidKnight Inventors finished as Mount Olive District Event Champions, along with our alliance partners, and took home the Excellence in Engineering Award – a celebration of all the developments we have been able to make as a team with our new engineering lab. We are elated to start off the 2017 season strong and are even more excited to compete at the Hudson Valley Regional, as well as our next district event at Montgomery in the coming weeks!
