Robo Lions at the World Championship

Peachtree Ridge Robo Lions Pounce at World Championships
The Peachtree Ridge Robo Lions Team 1261 based in Suwanee, Georgia were able to qualify for the FIRST Robotics World Championships that took place in St. Louis, Missouri this past week. We were one of just twelve Georgia FRC teams to qualify and made it farther than we have ever done before!
Clawing our way through two days of qualification matches, the Robo Lions placed thirteenth out of seventy-five competing teams within Curie, one of the 8 divisions during FRC Championships. From there, they were chosen to join the 5th seed alliance captain Team 5406 Celt-X from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada and their alliance partners Team 3641 Flying Toasters from South Lyon, Michigan. Team 2883 F.R.E.D from Warroad, Minnesota was chosen to be the backup 4th robot on the alliance. The determined trio fought hard only to be stopped short in the semi-final matches, losing by a small margin of first 6 points, then 13 points. Still an incredible feat for our team that has never played in eliminations at Championships before!
