Robotics impresses at competition

Vianney's robotics team alliance advanced to the finals of the First FTC Q4 Qualifier, but lost a nail-biter!   We earned 2nd place alliance honors and a trophy.

This was the First FTC Q4 Qualifier event at Meramec Community College. A total of 34 high schools and organizations participated in the event.
Each team's robot competed in 5 different rounds, and at the end of regulation, The Vianney "Grizzly Griffin" Team 6453 finished in FIRST PLACE.  (Team 7403, our rookie team of freshman, finished 32 but learned a TREMENDOUS amount from the senior team 6453).
The top 4 teams then picked 2 other teams to form "alliances," which then went on to a two-round playoff bracket (i.e., semi-finals and a finals round).
