Team 569A had robot issues but still managed to keep a smile on their face throughout the day.  They finished 39th out of 40 and were not selected for the playoffs.

Team 569 B finished 7th out of 40 teams in the qualifying rounds. Their alliance went on to perform brilliantly in the playoffs but were knocked off by our very own Team 569D in the semifinals.  However their disappointment was short-lived as during the awards ceremony Team 569B won the highest award you can win at a VEX tournament, the Excellence Award.  This award goes to the best overall team at the event. The judges (real world engineers) deemed that Team 569B was the overall best team when it came to how they performed on the field, in the programming and driver skills challenges, their teamwork, their engineering notebook, and their interview with the judges.  This award qualifies Team 569B for CA State Championships in February.  Congratulations 569B!

Team 569 C finished the qualifying rounds in 8th place out of 40 teams. They performed extremely well in the quarterfinals but were defeated in the semifinals. Team 569C drove the wheels off of their robot and they are sure to have continued success with the work this team is putting in.

Team 569 D finished 4th out of 40 teams in the qualifying rounds. Their alliance went on to perform brilliantly in the playoffs making it all the way to the finals.  Unfortunately, in the finals they were narrowly beaten in 3 matches in the best of 3 format.  However they have nothing to hang their heads about as this team brought home 3 awards including: Tournament Finalist, Programming Skills Champion, and the Amaze Award for best Autonomous routine.  This team also attended a tournament on their own on Saturday and lost in the semifinals.  However they did bring home the Judges Award.  Not a bad weekend for our newest team!

To have 3 teams in the top 8 out of a 40 team field was quite an accomplishment and a testament to how well these teams prepared for this tournament.
