On August 30th and 31st, we attended the inaugural Chezy Champs off season tournament, hosted by Team 254, The Cheesy Poofs, at Bellarmine College Preporatory. After a series of unlucky matches with alliance partners losing commincations on the field during the Qualification Matches, we were seeded 28th with a record of 3-7-0. However, we were picked by the 7th alliance captain, Team 5136, Mechapirates, along with Team 2485, WARlords, for Elimination Matches. Although we lost in quarterfinals to the eventual finalists — Teams 846, 971, and 2135 — we had a great time competing throughout the weekend. In addition, we were honored to win the Programming or “Such Controls” Award for demonstrated excellence in our controls system. We would like to extend a big thank you to our students, mentors, and alumni for their continued hard work and support, and to Team 254 for putting on this well-run tournament that we hope will continue for years to come. Congratulations to all the teams who participated at Chezy Champs, and we look forward to competing at CalGames on October 3rd and 4th!
