At the end of the qualifying matches, our drive and software teams chose Team Masquerade 4997 (Tampa) and Wired Cats 6322 (Ft. Lauderdale) as alliance partners. Our alliance defeated the 2nd place blue alliance in the elimination matches claiming a much deserved victory. It was not easy! Everyone agreed this was the most intense tournament (54 matches). We faced amazing teams with impressive robots. At the end, The Pink Team-FTC 6323 was crowned Florida State Champs and is heading to the South Regionals in Athens, Georgia in March to face over 72 teams.
