On Jan. 14th the Pirate Robotics team competed at the Nimitz HS Qualifying Tournament. The Pirates and their alliance team fought their way into the finals but were defeated in the last match. The Pirates are highly ranked and are still eligible for a spot at state.
In addition, Pirate Robotics won the valuable Design Award. This award goes to the team that has the best designed robot.
The team is still working hard to improve their robot and will compete at least one more time and potentially win a spot in the State Tournament.
Here is a video clip of a final match where the Pirates and their alliance partner dominated.
