Jack in the Bot (FRC Team 2910) recently not only won the Pacific Northwest District Championship at Eastern Washington University in Cheney but reached the current world record for the second time since the SunDome competition. Achieving full grids, fighting through disconnects, and participating in the most exciting district event of the season, it’s no wonder this local Mill Creek team is considered world-class.
Over three days we managed to reach the world record…twice. We set it once with 191 points before an alliance at another event topped us with 192. That very same day, we reached 192–and we hadn’t even entered the playoffs yet. Ranking first of fifty teams, we invited FRC teams 2046, 948, and later 1983 to our alliance. Though we lost a playoff match, we still managed to pull through and earn the DCMP trophy.
We’re proud to announce that we are officially qualified to compete at the World Championship and prouder still for the opportunity to play with 600+ teams and robots from all over the world. There are no words to describe our gratitude toward our alliance partners and FIRST for making our success possible. With just one more competition this season, we’re already counting down the seconds before we arrive in Houston.
