The Bots in Blue had a wonderful experience participating in the FTC South San Antonio Metro League Championship yesterday. The competition was a 12 hour culmination event after competing in 24 hours of competition spread over 3 meets against 27 teams from schools across southern Bexar County and adjacent counties.


The team finished in 2nd place after 20 matches and made an alliance with the 1st seed to move into the elimination matches. After making a valiant effort, the team was defeated in the finals. However, they did qualify for a regional wildcard event that will take place on Feb 16th at Brandies HS. They were also the highest placing 1A-4A school at the championship and will most likely receive an invitation to the UIL State Championship in Austin April 4-6.


The students’ work on effective and innovative programming was recognized by the organizers and were awarded the Control Award for programming excellence.


It was a great honor to have Dr. Roper, Dr. Hyde, Mr. Shelby and his son in attendance to support the students and celebrate the fruits of their hard work. Also, Mrs. Huerta stepped up again to help with the team and also volunteered as a referee. She truly goes Above and Beyond.


More importantly, many judges and league officials made a point to come to me and express how impressed they were with the demeanor, gracious professionalism, and hard work the team members displayed throughout the entire process. Even after being defeated in the finals, the students’ infectious enthusiasm was on display as they began to dance as a group and were joined by members of many other teams.


It was fitting on MLK day to have the content of the students’ character recognized in addition to the accomplishment of their robot.

On Monday, January 21, 2019, the Bots in Blue made their way to McCollum HS to compete in the South SA Metro Championship of the FTC Rover Ruckus Challenge. While there, the team presented to a panel of judges, speaking about subjects such as their robot, their programming, their team, and their school. After that, the Bots in Blue began to face off against other teams in multiple rounds of matches, eventually rising to the second place spot out of twenty seven teams. Then, they competed in the semi-finals as a part of an alliance, and advanced to the final round. Though they lost the final match, the Bots in Blue will continue and advance to the FTC Regional Wildcard Meet in February. They also returned home with two trophies: the Finalist Alliance Trophy, for advancing to the final round alongside their alliance, and the Control Award, for the robot’s innovative and efficient programming code. Good job Bots in Blue and good luck in February!
