Arrows Robotics Teams Compete in Qualifying Tournament

Arrows Robotics Teams Compete in Qualifying Tournament

The St. Sebastian’s School FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) Robotics teams traveled to Needham High School on Saturday, February 4th to compete in a FIRST Robotics Massachusetts Qualifying tournament against sixteen other teams from the area. 

Each Arrows team competed in six preliminary-round matches and both finished with a 3 – 3 record. Team 19556 placed 9th and was two points(!) away from finishing top 4. Team 133 placed 7th and received the Design Award for a robot that “implemented strong industrial design principles, striking a balance between form, function, and aesthetics."  

 The teams have a short turnaround time to make improvements, as they travel to Canton High School on February 18th for their second Qualifier.   

 Thank you to the Needham High School robotics teams for hosting a tremendous day of competition!
