Season Update

Posted on Posted in Competition, Events

The M.A.R.S. Rovers have experienced great success in our season so far! 

Our first competition of the season, the Muskegon competition we hosted, went smoothly, and we ended up winning the event as the 3rd seed alliance captain, along with our alliance partners, team 3546, the Buc’n’Gears from Grand Haven, and team 3458, Code Blue from Holland. We also received the Imagery Award at this event. (For more details and stats on this competition, click here.)

Our second regional competition in Shepherd, Michigan, also went very well, where we were District Event Finalists along with team 5084, Team Fridgebot from Corunna, and team 6533, BeaverTech from Beaverton. We were also awarded the Innovation in Control Award. (For more details, click here.)

Our efforts in these competitions qualified us for the State Championship, at which we were finalists in the DTE Energy Division, competing on the 8th seed alliance which also consisted of team 3770, BlitzCreek from Midland, and team 2054, Tech Vikes from Hopkins.
