For my money its gonna be 1712. 2016 was their breakout year IMO, and ever since then they have consistently made it to DCMP and a few times to champs too. Who could forget their 2018 robot which honestly was one of the best bots in the district that year and they got a Finalist appearance at their first district then too.
Top 10 ELO Teams with no Chairman’s or Event Wins:
The name that sticks out to me the most from this list is 2539 because holy cow… they were really impressive this year.
For MN, the team that really sticks out in my mind is 3100 since I have the prior knowledge that they’ve never made champs, but I love their team and I know it’s going to come super soon. The past 2 years they have built some super solid and competitive robots.
I just had this on hand because I had previously looked at the best teams without a blue banner, which is a slightly different question. I had no intent of trying to portray the data in any certain light.
Never got a chance to respond to this, wasn’t really on CD in 8th grade. @waialua359 we can travel with the school funding it, but only once. meaning either we can go to a second regional and automatically count us out of champs regardless of if we qualify, or just cross our fingers at Hawaii regional. The policy extends for all sports teams and clubs, so I doubt it will change anytime soon. Kinda disappointing, but we try to make the most of it nonetheless. Last year was a bit of a rough year with a change in coaches and other issues like starting to develop swerve in season, but this year might be good for us, due to the lack of bagging, and some offseason development stuff. Fingers crossed.
From WOW I nominate 5413. They have been around since the 2014 offseason, competing with our practice bot chassis from that season and winning MVRC as a pre-rookie. They were finalist with us in 2015 at the Buckeye Regional. They always build a super competitive robot and are consistently a top team at our local regionals. The only blue banners they have earned is a WFFA award in 2018 .
The only team left in eWA who desperately needs one in 4980. Dual finalist runs at WV in 2018/19, and seeded on Roebling in 2018. Its only a matter of time before they finally break their event win drought.
4944 is a shock because they were a subdivision finalist in 2018 as an alliance CAPTAIN! But I’m afraid they were a robot that fell into the “donut from hell” that year–they couldn’t reach the scale, but they were so good at the switch and exchange that they would be picked up by a low seeded captain every time. They are a team on the rise and I expect they might have won a regional this year.
