FIRST Team 744 won second place at the inaugural Panther Prowl Robotics Competition at the Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne, Florida.
Twenty-four teams from around the state converged upon FIT’s Clemente Center for an amazing competition on Saturday (September 29th, 2012). We won 6 of 7 qualification matches and 4 of 4 elimination matches to make it to the final round. The robot had no mechanical or electrical failures and our drive team of Chad Tucker, Patrick Powell, and Andrew Reising was nearly flawless in their rookie outing. The whole team performed brilliantly in an near perfect team effort. The parents and friends who joined us in support the team were amazing. The cheering was at times deafening.
