Congratulations Coach Pritts and our TROBOTICS/Robotics team for finishing up their regular season on Saturday. Special shout-out to the team of junior Sam Bush and senior Renee Jessee who qualified their robot for the State Championship on March 6!
The state championship format is three 60-second runs of driver control and three 60-second runs of completely autonomous control. The top scores of each category are added together for a total score.
Down to her last autonomous trial, programmer Renee Jessee initialized the robot and it ran the best run of the season, using a pair of vision sensors to “see” objects on the field, pick them up, “see” the goal and score them.
Then, down to his last driver trial, driver Sam Bush executed a superb run scoring 8/9 towers in 60 seconds, best of the day. Their total score topped their previous best.
The duo placed 33rd overall in the state. Congratulations to the team!
