St. Sebastian’s FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) Robotics Team competed in a FIRST Robotics Massachusetts qualifying tournament against 22 other teams from the area at Canton High School on Saturday, February 1.
The Arrows competed in five preliminary-round matches, performing with consistency and scoring chunks of points during the teleop phase, finishing with a 4 – 1 record. That put the team in 3rd place, earning the right to be an Alliance Captain entering the semifinal stage. Strong Alliance partners helped us to the win our semifinal bouts and moved us into the finals, where team Arrows fell valiantly to the alliance captained by team Evolution.
Despite a loss in the finals, the performance by team Arrows qualified them to attend the FTC State Championships at Natick High School on March 7.
The team would like to thank the Canton High School robotics teams for hosting a fun-filled day of intense competition!
