Team is also named Captain of the winning alliance. Said Coach Andy Witman, "Through it all, I couldn't be prouder of the way our students worked together as a team, stayed calm, and displayed incredible skill in driving and maintaining the robot."
After a day full of successes, failures, and a bit of luck, the Marlbots were the overall game winners at Saturday's FTC Robotics LA Regional Championship Tournament. They qualified as the number one seed with a perfect 5/5 record and had two incredible come-from-behind victories in the semifinal and final rounds. There was the smallest margin of error with some very, very close matches. Said Coach Andy Witman, "Through it all, I couldn't be prouder of the way our students worked together as a team, stayed calm, and displayed incredible skill in driving and maintaining the robot." The Marlbots will advance to compete against the top 72 teams in the 13 Westernmost States at their Super Regional Tournament in Tacoma, Washington on March 10-12th.
