Time for some quick adjustments.

The North Star Regional was our first where we intentionally scouted the opposition using our 1;1 technology.  The scouts did a great job.

The Duluth Regional Results

The Duluth Regional Results

Team 3277 Prodigi

Six weeks of blood, sweat, and tears.

On March 2-5 ProDigi traveled down to Duluth to participate in the FIRST Lake Superior regional.

Despite only a few practice matches, we got our bot up and running early on.  ProDigi went 6-2 during the qualifying match where we ended up being ranked fifth overall.

The practice field and rounds went well.

Fortunately, things went very, very well for our team in both the practice matches and the qualifying rounds.

Our drive team of Jace Johnson, Alexis Lane, and Bryson Bray and mentor, Mr. Foy, talk strategy during the qualifying rounds with the Robottes.

When the top 8 teams were announced, we again were ranked 5 overall for the alliance selection process.  The top ranked team, Duluth Denfeld, DNA Robotics (team 4009), selected the second ranked team, a team from Hawaii, the Hawaiian Kids (team 359), to form a stellar alliance right away. They selected a rookie team, Eden Valley, Mystery Machine (team 6175).

We actually made it all the way up to number four over all once DNA selected the Hawaiian Kids.

When it came for us to select our first alliance partner, we selected Warrior Robotics from Brainerd team 2503).  To complete our alliance we selected The Green Machine from Edina (team 1816) to be our final alliance member.

Our alliance took care of business 97-57 in match #1.  In match #2, our alliance again came out on top, 121-115, to move on to the semifinal round.

In the semifinals, though, we ran into the top ranked alliance and lost the first match 57-97 and the second match 86-155.

Luckily, though, we ended up amassing 53 points as a team, which puts us on the path to participating in the state robotics tournament on May 21st.

We can't forget to thank our sponsor, Digi Key!

Welcome to the blog for ProDigi Team #3277 
Lincoln High School
Thief River Falls, MN

We were delighted when the school board for ISD 564 visited our campus to see what we have been up to this year in robotics.

They have been incredibly supportive of us.  We would like to thank them for all that they do for us.
