Robo Knights @ World Competition

Team 1970K "Knight Shift"
Knight Shift competed in one of the 5 HS divisions that each had 86 teams in them.  The Technology division was a very tough division and the Knight Shift team was able to recover from a 2-4 start to go 4-0 over the last 4 matches to finish 6-4 and in 30th place.  Unfortunately, they were not chosen for an alliance, but they were able to fisnish the tournament on a flurry of victories.

On a very positive note, 1970K was able to post a drivers skill score of 69 (a season best) that ended up good enough for 26th place overall in the World!  Are you kidding, a team from Nebraska was able to end up 26th place out of the thousands of HS/MS teams in the world...WOW!  This was, also, the highest drivers score of any of the local teams!  5069A from Millard North was close behind at 68, but Knight Shift took that title as best of the area.

Congratulations to Knight Shift on a great season and a special thanks to team members Nick Huetter, Michael Ford, and Aaron Meyer.  A great showing for MM and a good look at what the future will be holding for this program. - Coach Maline
