FIRST Chesapeake District Greater DC Event #1 Day #2
The Greater DC Event was hosted at Old Banneker High school. There were 19 teams present for competition.
To Corvus or not to Corvus? That is not the question, as the clear answer is to Corvus. For the first time in a couple years, the Power Hawks robot was truly a force to be reckoned with. We played 10 qualification matches, finishing with a record of 7-3, and the highest average points for the autonomous period at 12.6 points, with the second highest being 9.8 points. After the qualification matches, we held the third seed. We ended up being drafted by the first seed, the Robo Lions. The third team of the alliance ended up being 2186, the Dogs of Steel. As the first seeded alliance for the playoffs, we were guaranteed to be on the red alliance throughout playoffs. After sweeping the 4th seed in the semifinals, we were to play the second seeded team. We swept the second seed in the finals and secured the regionals win!
The Covid-19 Pandemic truly hurt every single robotics team, and affected us as well. Despite this immense setback, the Power Hawks stayed dedicated to impacting the community, and it paid off. The Power Hawks won the Chairman's award for the Chesapeake(CHS) District Greater DC Event #1. After hard work through staying active in the community, Chairman's is ours to claim!
