Article Written by John Novacek:

At the end of the day Friday the 28th, the gator robotics team 5172 ranked at 14th. But, at the end of Saturday the 29th, the team was ranked 12th climbing two rankings out of 60 teams. We had a rough schedule throughout the tournament going 6 and 3. During alliance selection we were selected by 3293 the Otter bots and then asked 4198 the Robocats. We went flawlessly through the bracket until finals going 0 and 2 and finishing second in the regional. We had a great time cheering on our team throughout the day and then we got to awards. Our team won the Industrial Design Award, sponsored by General Motors. This award celebrates form and function in an efficiently designed machine that effectively addresses the game challenge. We also received the finalist award for being in one of the alliances in the finals. Each of our team members received a medal for this.
