April 26, 2010 – Katy, Texas – The Cinco Ranch High School Robotics Team 624 participated in the Lone Star Regional at the George R. Brown last month.  The competition proved to be more exciting than ever before for Team 624! Our team finished the qualifying match round with a 7-1-1 record leaving us as the 3rd seeded team out of a field of 66 teams going into the elimination rounds.  After exciting wins in the quarterfinals and semifinals we made it to the finals to take on an alliance that included both the first and second seeded teams.  We won the first match of the best of three match final, leaving the other alliance in shock!  Unfortunately, two opposing alliance robots were able to turn our robot over and prevent our relentless scoring attack giving them the victory.  Even with this loss, it was a proud moment for our team to compete at this level of competition.  Team 624 was the recipient of the “Engineering Inspiration” award which qualified us to attend the FIRST Championship in Atlanta. The TEA and the Houston Endowment provided grants to offset our entry fees to the Championship.  With the help of our school administrators, teachers, sponsors and mentors, travel/lodging arrangements for over 40 people were made within 48 hours!  The competition in Atlanta was fierce with teams from all over the world vying for a spot on the Championship EINSTEIN Field.  The team did a fantastic job making it to the Curie Division Quarter Finals.   We are all extraordinarily proud of our performance and look forward to next season.  Keep a look out for our Green Hair Spikes!!!  Please mention you found this on www.KatyMagazine.com.
