SOA returning to the World Championships in April
It’s 2017 all over again. Once again, we finished 2nd at the Virginia State Championships in both Teamwork and Driver Skills. Once again, we won the Amaze Award recognizing the best middle school robot build. And once again, we have qualified for the World Championships as a wild card, thanks to both Soaring Eagles and Rising Phoenix double qualifying as the Teamwork, Excellence, and Design champions. As of the beginning of March, we are the 7th ranked team in the world, which is our best season finish in three years of competing. We’re excited to be a strong team heading into Worlds, but we know it’s going to take more practice and design improvement to run with the very best.
