We were part of the Darwin Division at the Detroit Championship in 2018. During the first day of competition, we finished the day undefeated and seeded 14th. We stayed consistent through Friday and moved up to 9th place in our division at Worlds. On Saturday morning, we moved into the 8th alliance position.
Our alliance went on to face the 1st alliance. at which point we were eliminated. I’d like to congratulations team 2708, Lake Effect Robotics from Kingston, Ontario, for winning the Detroit Championship with the Daly alliance, and a huge thank you to our parents and supporters that came all the way down to Detroit to support us.
