RoboDesigners Wins Judges' Award at Liberty University VEX Competition

RoboDesigners team 2190 competed at the Liberty University VEX Competition, held on March 26, 2011.  We were undefeated throughout the qualifiers, and seeded 1st place.  Unfortunately, we lost by one point in the semi-finals.  However, we still won the Judges' Award, which is awarded to a team that the judges think deserves special recognition for their performance.

We congratulate teams 33, the Mavericks, and 1851B, the Southside Vexters, for winning first place.  We also congratulate the Twisted Botz on winning the Excellence Award.  Many thanks to all the volunteers who made this event possible.

Pictures of the tournament can be found on VEXsouth.com.
