The No. 2 seed FIRST Robotics alliance was well on its way to winning the first round of the Richmond Regional, when the Franklin High School Team 1610 robot, “Chad,” was accidentally backed into a stack of totes, knocking over 36 points.
As the beeping started to count down the final seconds of the “Recycle Rush” match, the teams in the alliance tried to scramble for points, but the blue group, captained by Talon 540 from Godwin High School, picked up the 102-84 first-round victory.
“I thought that would cause us to lose the regional,” said Cindy Mitrovic, 15, who is the team captain.
Mitrovic had also been driving the robot and she was admittedly upset. There was still hope, though, as the finals are a best two-of-three competition. Sarah Conner, who operated the robot’s arm, was concerned about recovering.
“I was worried if it would impact the remaining matches for our alliance,” she said. “Being down a match and having to win two in a row was extremely tough.”
