Hilo Viking Robotics attended the Vex: Nothing But Net state championship at Pearl City High School in Oahu. Our 1378 Z team placed 15th, with our 1378 team placing 18th and our 1378 X team placing 31st. More information on rankings and awards can be found here.
Our 1378 team had the opportunity to compete in elimination matches as they were picked by the 8th seeded team to compete against the first seeded team. We tried our best and gave it our all, but we ended up being eliminated after two well played matches.
We would like to thank all the teams for being sportsmanlike. Congratulations to the three first place teams: Pearl City High School’s 4142 A, 4142 B, and Punahou School’s 1841 A. Going to the state level competition this year was an amazing opportunity for all of our club members and a great honor for our club. Thank you to all of our sponsors, mentors, advisers, and parents. This wonderful experience could not have been possible without your help.
