Today, Team #11570, The Mekanikal Maniaks 2 went to the district qualifying tournament at Kalani High School. It was a big tournament, with a total of 20 teams. Our pit tables were in the cafeteria, with the robot matches held in the gym. It was an exciting, fun tournament, and to make it even more special, we had our very own cheering section, led by our siblings and families. We felt really good about our presentations, and really tried our best. During the robot games, we cheered for our team, as well as others. We even got to do our own team cheer in front of the audience with a microphone.
During the awards, we were pleasantly surprised to win the award for "Team Work." Right after that, we were still in shock, as they announced that Team #11570 would also be advancing to the State Championship tournament! Great job, Mekanikal Maniaks! We hope you can come cheer us on on Sat. Dec. 3rd.
P.S We have decided to change our team name for the State Championship Tournament. We voted to call oursevles the "Lightning Maniaks!"
