The Upsala Robotics team - 4480 - Competed yesterday with the Northern Minnesota Robotics Conference Open event yesterday all day at Alexandria High School. There were 23 total teams competing during the day, and the students from Upsala did a fabulous job representing Upsala. We had 8 students represent the team and many of our new members had opportunities to drive the robot for the first time, assist on loading the robot on and off the field, take photos, scout and more! (these photos were taken by them!) At the conclusion of the Qualification matches, Upsala was chosen in the first round to be a part of the number 4 seed alliance for final playoffs. The alliance consisted of 5913 - Pequot Lakes -Patriotics, 4480 - Upsala- UC-Botics, 8878 - Ashby - Arrowbots. With many tough matches ahead, and being the underdog, Our alliance managed to perform at peak performance and went completely Undefeated through the Playoff Tournament and secured First Place! A full stream of the day is available on Youtube: Plus Mr. Robertson was a featured guest commentator starting around the 13 minutes mark helping to explain what is FIRST Robotics, and providing some post match commentary on the matches.

The Upsala Robotics team participated at the NMRC championship event. After some struggle early on the team finished 6th overall in qualifications, which allowed 4480 to be an alliance captain for the first time ever! Selecting our neighboring teams of both Swanville and Pillager to participate in our alliance, we competed in Playoffs and placed in 4th overall! Kudos to our awesome students who worked hard throughout the day, managed to improve our robot and keep it operating and ultimately helped achieve a great victory! @ucbotics #learn487 #FIRST #STEM #NMRC
