CHS had some 10th graders good enough to be on their A team this year, and our current B division 9th graders are actually quite good, so I wasn't surprised they did well at states. Even with the seniors graduating, Vlieg has been cultivating a good crop to send up to Prout. Now, the likelihood of us cutting off Gelinas or Eagle Hill this year is... :roll: :| We swept regionals just as well as last year, but not as much as we were hoping.

Now, to B states! Anyone have a list of the teams that have qualified so far? GMS and HVC are all I know right now.
Congrats Guys! I was honestly not expecting Columbia to do so well based on the results from MIT and Yale, but you guys did amazingly. Incredible how your school's robot arm got DQ-ed after getting the full score (should have been 1st) and Columbia still got 1st by 20 points. Good luck at nationals! (2 NY schools in top 10 maybe?)

Took too long to set up. They get 3 mins, but they weren''t ready at the 3 min mark and it took them a little over 3 mins. Unfortunate.

Hello Everyone,

I have a question for bottle rocket B at states. I got the gold medal with ten and eleven seconds. However, I heard from other teams that they got eleven seconds per rocket.

IF YOU WERE AT DIV. B NY STATES FOR BOTTLE ROCKET, please post your times, i am trying to find out what happened. Thank you.

Don't worry, classic rounding up. They probably got like 10.2 and 10.4 and rounded that to 11 sec. Or maybe they got like one or 2 11 second runs in practice but not the competition. A few years back I was going helicopters and got a great time but a bunch of people from another schools said they got a time much better than mine. I was a bit upset, but ended up getting first and it turned out they were trollin me. People do it all the the time hah.
