Travis, we are grateful that such excellent teams gave us this opportunity and that made the kids work that much harder to prove themselves on the field. We seem to make it to Saturday afternoon but have only made it past the quarters twice. The kids feel very good about the competition and are ready for Buckeye and St. Louis.
You guys did a great job, and I would gladly work with you again. Just remember when things are going wrong, keep a cool head and don't be afraid to ask for help. We cannot be the best we can without our friends and teammates. We would have been knocked out if the Robocats (379) wouldn't have lent us their batteries and charging cart. Even the most recognized teams in FIRST need help from their friends It's all about coopertition. Good luck with the rest of your season.
