After a slow build season and a rough start to the weekend at the South East Mass District Event, Team 172 was able to get on its feet and win a few qualification matches with Sparky, this year’s robot. After playing hard, Team 172 was ranked 31st in qualifications and was the second pick of Alliance Seven. Team 172 was eliminated in the quarterfinals, 0-2. Despite the rough turn out, members of Team 172 remain proud of their work and will continue to improve for the upcoming Pine Tree event in Week Six.
Here’s a shout out to team member Max and his team of match scouts. Our scouting at Bridgewater was awesome, led by Max. He took on the difficult task of organizing teams of students to watch matches and collect data about other teams to help us in match strategy, and during alliance selections. Team 172 and Team 246 worked well together.
