CASCADE FINALIST ALLIANCE CAPTAIN
In the second week of March 2018, we traveled to Spokane, Washington to compete at the West Super Regionals, where we played in the Cascade Division. There, we attained the highest number of Qualifying Points in our division (16) and secured our spot as the 1st seeded Alliance Captain. We also set a division high score of 608 points during the Qualifying Matches, only to top it with a world record-setting score of 638 points during the Division Semifinals. Overcharged, along with our Alliance Partners with RevAmped and 8367 Acme, qualified for the Cascade Finals and earned the Division Finalist Alliance Captain title. This allowed all the teams on our alliance to make it to the World Championship.
INNOVATE AWARD 3RD PLACE
In addition to being Division Finalist Alliance Captains, our team was also nominated for the Rockwell-Collins Innovate Award. Our robot contained multiple unique aspects that made it eligible for the Innovate Award. Our robust swerve drive, flexible belt intake, and bottom-grabbing relic mechanism were three of the most prominent mechanical innovations on our robot.
