On Saturday, October 27, the New Vista Robotics Team competed with 26 other teams at the BEST Robotics competition in Denver. Our day started out tough as the team had to make some significant changes to the robot during the competition. At one point, we thought our day may have been over before it even started. After the first 2 rounds, we were in last place. In the subsequent 3 rounds, the team work furiously and moved up to 11th place. This allowed us to move on to a wildcard round in a last chance attempt to move to the semi-finals. We won the wildcard round securing a spot in the semi-finals. We competed in the semi-finals and came up short of making the final round, but ended up 7th out of 27 teams! The team showed grit and resiliency and never gave up! Great work to all of the robotics members!
