2018 Miami Valley Regionals Results

We finished the 2018 Miami Valley Regionals with our best showing ever! We finished qualifications in the top 8, which meant we got to choose our own alliance partners for the first time since Ozone started in 2013. This has been a milestone goal of ours for two years now, and we did it!

Ultimately, we finished the competition ranked sixth, out of 61 teams, losing in the quarterfinals to the team that ended up in first place.

Even more exciting, though, is our ranking in the “Ownership” category. “Ownership,” for this year’s game, is determined by the amount of time an alliance keeps the Scale and the Lever tilted in their favor. This is what we focused on when building our bot, and it paid off – only three teams scored better in this than we did!

Looking at the rankings in each category on the official scoreboard, we came out looking like this:

  • 4th in Ownership
  • 6th overall
  • 12th in Endgame
  • 14th in Auto
  • 24th in Vault

Check out our scores on the FRC Official Scoreboard, and join us again for the Buckeye Valley Regionals in Cleveland, March 28 Р31. We have a strong team, and a solid robot this year. Cleveland is going to be exciting!
