World Championship! – St. Louis – April 2017

The WiredCats’ first trip to a world championship was quite an experience! Being a new(er) team, there was much to learn about getting our robot and team from West Michigan to St. Louis. We figured it out, sometimes the hard way, and had a great experience!

In competition, we started strong, ranked as high as #3 on Daly. A highlight from day 1 was being on an alliance that was successful in competition against a popular cheesy snack food 🙂  We struggled with some technical challenges on day 2 and finished 19th on Daly. Unfortunately, we were not selected for an alliance to move on. We are proud of our team, and also of our Kalamazoo-area friends, Stryke Force, that went on to win the championship!
