FTC Robotics Teams Score at Home Event

On Saturday, Dec. 2nd, Saint George’s hosted the second FTC (First Tech Challenge) robotics qualifying event. Eight local teams, including our own teams 6128 (Dragons 1.0) & 7935 (Dragons 2.0), braved the snowy weather and competed in some great rounds of play. All teams had working robots, and even though there were the usually occasional technical difficulties, everyone was able to end the day with at least one alliance win. See at Photo Gallery of the event, and a YouTube video of a match with Both SGS Teams on the Red Alliance.

With the Dragons 1.0’s working autonomous program and unique intake design, their robot was able to come out with most of the high scores! Both teams held their rankings, with Dragon’s 1.0 (represented by Braeden Bledsoe, Donovan Bradford, Vedant Mahajan, Noah Naccarato, Eshan Reddy, Jasmin Tohmeh, Mysun Ward, Dexter Simmons, and Janie Martinez) ending in 3rd and Dragons 2.0 (represented by Cassidy Clelland, Bentley English, Steel Lindauer, and Mason Foster) ending in 4th!

Their next competition is the Interleague Competition on January 13 at Ridgeline High School, where they will compete against 16 teams from around the region. Winners from this event will advance to State. Go Dragons!
