2017 Hub City Champs!

Worlds Here we come!

After qualifications matches we placed 9th, but clenched the very last playoff seat at the. As alliance captains we selected 11th ranked team 935, RaileRobotics, and 26th ranked team 4063, TriKzR4Kidz. As an alliance we competed against the first seated alliance in quarter-finals, the 4th ranked alliance in semi-finals, and the 2nd ranked alliance in finals. After overcoming many obstacles, the hard work of the Students, Parents, Mentors, and the support of our sponsors allowed us to prosper. We became the captains of the winning alliance at the  FRC Hub city regional 2017. Advancing us to nationals, in Houston Texas later this year. Congratulations to our alliance partners. And Thank-you to our sponsors, without your support none of this would have been possible.


World Championships!!!

Starting on January 3, 2015 First Robotics Competition Teams (FRC) around the entire world spend six weeks designing, building, and training to compete in World Championships which was held in St. Louis, Missouri on April 22nd -25th. After coming in as the Second Alliance at the Alamo FIRST Robotics Competition and receiving a wildcard at the Hub City FIRST Robotics competition we were one of the competing teams at World Championship! This year there were 40,000 people in audience, 40 Countries, and 600 Robots at the Recycle Rush FIRST Competition. We were ranked 15th out of 76 in our Hopper division by the end of the Qualification rounds and were alliances with the 3rd ranked team (Alliance: FRC TEAMS 369, 2590, 1817, 11). Unfortunately we came up short about 3 points and were bumped out of semi – finals. The bright side was that we made it to World Champs and after being bumped out we were able to show our gracious professionalism by staying and supporting the other teams! After watching the winning alliance jump up and down out of excitement we chicken danced our way out of the dome. The most important thing there is to remember is that even though we didn’t make it to finals we tried our very best and can go bigger and harder next year!!! Raider! Power! Raider! Power!

Recap – Alamo FIRST Robotics Competition

On March 11th, 2015 we took off to San Antonio for Alamo’s FIRST Robotics Competition that took place on March 12-14th. We made it to Semi-Finals and toted ourselves to Finals where we were asked to alliance with the (Pink Team) Team 233 and together completed the alliance with Team 2158 (AustinCANs). As a team we had several accomplishments. We won a FINALISTS trophy, individual Red FIRST medals and our Safety Captain earned the “Safety Star of the day” pin. Congratulations to the winning alliance as well! Everyone had a blast! #PinkRaidersCAN

Bagged and Tagged!

After six weeks of brainstorming, prototyping, building, debugging and staying late nights, the RoboRaiders are ready to compete at the Hub City Regional and the Alamo Regional competition for the 2015 FRC game “Recycle Rush”!

Bagged and tagged, we are now focusing on driver practice and getting the pit crew ready. Along with having fun watching other regional competitions and building team spirit, we will be practicing scouting, taking care of travel arrangements and getting ready for the Chairman’s presentation.
