2013: Ultimate Ascent
FIRST Ultimate Ascent is played by two competing alliances on a flat, 27 x 54 ft. field. Each alliance consists of three robots. They compete to score as many discs into their own goals as the can during a two minute and fifteen second match. The higher the goal in which the disc is scored, the more points the alliance receives.
FIRST’s 2013 Season, Ultimate Ascent, was our team’s rookie year. Our Advisor was on a robotics team during his high school career and thought it would be amazing to start the first and only team in northern California. Our first year contained minimal team members, mentors, and sponsor. But that didn’t stop us from coming together and going to the Sacramento Regional held at U.C. Davis. After the season was over, our team was invited to Elk Grove’s off season tournament, Powerhouse Pwnage. It was there that we won our first trophy for Highest Seeded Rookie.
