Quincy State




A great day of competition at the Eastern Massachusetts State tournament at Quincy North High School, sponsored by Gillette and the Quincy Public schools!

Three rounds of competition seeded the teams by their highest score.  Both the Sharon Black Botz (high 200, 6th place) and the Fire Blazers (high 265, 4th place) advanced to the 16 team play-offs, where the top half of each tier would advance to the next.  The Fire Blazers and the Black Botz both had issues with a mission table that they were assigned to repeatedly.  Despite that, the Fire Blazers made it to the quarter finals, and the Black Botz became the top team on the field, winning the Robotic Performance award.

The matrix of awards posted below is direct from the tournament director, Thomas Slowe.
