Team Pronto at the Microsoft Seattle Regional FIRST Robotics Competition

Team Pronto competed in the Microsoft Seattle Regional of the FIRST Robotics Competition.  During the competition the team performed valiantly, addressing mechanical problems with the robot, promoting safety and scouting other teams with which to form alliances.

During the Qualifying rounds Team Pronto 3070 participated in 9 qualifying rounds where we had 6 wins, 2 ties and only 1 loss.  We were the 11th ranked team entering the final tournament.  We were invited to join an alliance with teams 2910 and 1359.  Together our alliance won the first round but lost the second two.

During the competition we were the first team to attempt and the first team to complete a “hang.”  We achieved 3 hangs total, one of only two teams to do so.

Everyone from the students to the parents and the mentors made huge contributions to the performance of the team.

Video of the match are available at frcstream.com.  Search for Team 3070.  Here’s out quarterfinal win including our game-saving hang in the last 10 seconds of the match:
