SV's VEX Robotics Teams excelled at the State Championship​

Sixty-one teams competed in the SC Palmetto Partners State Championship​ at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center on Saturday. At the end of the qualification round, 120V Viking Logic finished 6th in match play and 13th in robot skills, while 120E Green & Gold Robotics finished 20th in match play and 21st in robot skills.It was a very exciting day for Spring Valley's teams, as they were each in first place at different times for a good chunk of the day.  What helped both teams do so well was their autonomous programming: both teams won 5 out of 6 of the autonomous time periods in their qualification matches.

In the elimination round, where the top teams choose 2 alliance partners to form 8 3-team alliances for a championship bracket, 120V Viking Logic led the 5th alliance and 120E Green & Gold Robotics joined the 7th alliance.  Both alliances competed valiantly; alas neither advanced to the semifinals. Still it was a very good day for Spring Valley's VEX Robotics Teams and their coach Spring Valley Computer Science teacher Mrs. Tammy Vaught.
