They did great, and their confidence in their driving and programming skills increased. Saturday went well with teams 7830A and 7830K staying 1st and 2nd for the first half of the tournament. Our team 7830P won the Sportsmanship award for helping the Payne team with their robot. Team 7830A won the Design award for their robot design and engineering notebook.
