It was a wonderfully successful morning.  Team MAX 1071 won 2 matches and tied 1 to finish qualification ranked 11 out of 58 teams.  With that we ended being captain of the 8th seeded alliance which is very impressive but leaves you playing the top seeded alliance in the first round of elimination. (breaking news: we lost that first game – best of 3 – 14-10 with a valiant effort.

Not only did the team have to play well, but they had to represent themselves in a series of interviews.

And… we won an additional award, the “bling-y-est bot award”!
