BBCHS Robotics 2017 Qualifies for the world championship

On Friday, March 17 BBCHS Robotics Ironclad participated in their first competition of the year. Ironclad slowly rose in the ranks during their qualification matches with 40 teams from all over the country, including one of the reigning World Champions, the Roboteers. During the 10 qualification matches (which are always alliances of 3 robots against 3 robots), BBCHS Robotics went 8-2 with the help of their paired teams! Robotics was ranked 3rd, which is the highest they have ever finished!

BBCHS Robotics in ACTION!

Moving into the playoffs, Ironclad became the #2 Alliance Captains selecting King Tec (#2169 out of Savage, Mn) and the Joliet Cyborgs (#4241 out of Joliet, Il) to be their Alliance partners. Ironclad advanced through the Quarterfinals and Semifinals before losing to the #1 ranked Alliance which included the Roboteers. Despite the loss, Ironclad qualified to attend the World Championships in St Louis by winning the Wild Card because of their playoff ranking.

Congratulations, Ironclad!
