The Silicon Valley Regional, our home regional, was held at the San Jose State University Event Center on March 13-14, 2009.
After winning six matches and losing two in the qualification matches, our team seeded fourth overall and picked Team 846, the Funky Monkeys from Lynbrook High School, and Team 8, The Vikings from Palo Alto High School, to join our alliance. The alliance moved on to win the first double-elimination match in the quarterfinals 88 to 48, but unfortunately lost the next two 64 to 69 and 52 to 72.
Regardless, our team managed to win three awards: the Best Website Award, the Delphi Driving Tomorrow’s Technology Award for our two-stage camera tracking system, and the Underwriter Laboratories Industrial Safety Award.
We are looking forward to our future competitions!
