  • 2022 Season Highlights

    For a first year ("Rookie") team, Dacula performed quite well in their robotics competitions. All teams in the state choose 2 competitions out of the 4 offered for the season. Points are accumulated for various things throughout each competition. We chose the second and third competitions. Below are the summaries of how we did in each competition. 

    Competition #2 - Columbus, GA   3/17 - 3/19

    • Qualified 24 out of 25
    • Finished 15th out of 25 teams based on points awarded throughout the event
    • Received "Rookie All-Star Award" for the team's ability to dial everything in as the event progressed (highest Rookie award). Only 3 of these were given in GA this season.

    Competition #3 - Carrollton, GA  3/24 - 3/26

    • Qualified 22nd out of 38 teams
    • Finished 25th out of 38 based on points for the event 
    • Received "Rookie Inspiration Award" for the team performing well despite there only being 2 members

    Our final standing in the state after all the regional events was 28th out of 67 total. 

    The top 32 teams qualified to go to the state championship.

    The Rookie All Star award qualified us to attend the state championship and be in the running for the State Rookie All Star award.
