Seeing this, I’m really bummed I can’t make it back to Ohio this weekend (seriously, I do plan to make it back there eventually for a regional or this event!)… It’s at my alma mater! I can’t even watch the live stream as I’ll be working the Minnesota State Championship. Good luck to all competing, but especially to the WorBots
The list in the document (those attending the OSC) is NOT the final rankings list. I believe there were 6 declines, including 120, who ranked first in the state based on points criteria. A team’s overall rank is listed in the left column of the attendee team list in the PDF doc. You will notice that 1 is missing.
And because y’all gonna ask…I attached the post-championship final Ohio rankings.
Unfortunately team 120 will not be able to participate. NASA is having their 75th anniversary and we wanted to help them celebrate. NASA is our primary sponsor and we wouldn’t think of missing an opportunity to be part of their celebration since they are such a big part of our history.
We really wanted to be at the state competition. Ohio has some great robots this year and it would have been great to see and compete against our friends once more. Good luck and have fun!
The Beak Squad had a blast at this event! Thanks to OhioFIRST, the OSC planning committee and all of the volunteers who made this event possible. Also, big shout-out to our host 4145 The WORBots. The venue was great! You’ll make great district event hosts in the future
We especially want to thank our excellent alliance partners 379, 2172, and 2603. You all were awesome to play with and we look forward to working with you again. We’ll never forget the semi-final match when we couldn’t connect to the field and you guys still managed to pull out the win. AMAZING!
Finally, I want to thank The Beak Squad team members. This was the most complex and difficult robot we have ever attempted. I know this season was a real grind, but you never once quit and refused to be defeated by our setbacks and difficulties. I am continuously inspired by your character, determination, and perseverance. It is a gift to be your coach.
Thank you to 3138, 695, and 1308 for partnering with us to take home the 3rd place award. 3138, you guys were a rock on offense. 695 has been with us before - helping win the 2014 State Championship - and once again did a commendable job. I wanted to shout out 1308 for coming back strong after a “thermal incident” at Queen City. I believe they said this was their first award/trophy of any kind at a competition, and they fought hard for it. Their defense in the semifinals was outstanding, and they also contributed everywhere else we asked. If only our robots weren’t so tired - it was a testament to the alliance’s teamwork that we got as close to the finals as we did given our various gremlins.
Congratulations to our Carson Division alliance partners 4028! It was exciting to see you guys do so well, and I’ll be sure to keep an eye out for you all next year. Also, congratulations to 379, 2172, and 2603!
