Couldve gotten first but they had unexpected difficulties on 2 of their tech events, like the ceiling being 6.6 meters,a tiny bit too small for their trebuchet, although they did manage to get one pretty good shot off. The score difference between 2nd and 3rd place this year was more than 160 points. Competition for 1st is extremly tight in NY, but I agree NY is ussualy dominated by 1-4 powerhouse teams.
Thanks! I'm so proud of my team.
Maybe next year I'll get to compete, this year I was an alt. I was nervous about the Eagle Hill/Murphy/Gelinas/EveryOtherTeam competition, because NY has a lot of talented teams.
