To be honest, probably my proudest moment was when I got third in A&P at an invitational without my partner. He had to do Battery Buggy at the same time, so I took it by myself. Honestly I felt under prepared, but it was nice to get third.

Then I got 2nd at states
connecticut is a really small place and you start at states because there aren't enough teams for regionals

If you think CT is small, you should come to Idaho. We had seven Division C teams at state last season.

Lol. Very relatable. The same thing happened to me but I was still in shock. :lol:

Probably when, during my first ever competition, I got 1st in water quality and 2nd in crime busters! It was only an invitational but I was really happy.

There are too many that its hard to choose.

I could pick that time I medaled at nats or states

But I think I was most proud during the Cornell Invite of 2018

You see, me and my partner weren't the best at rollercoaster. I believe we placed 66th in the invitational prior (Centerville) which was probably the reason we were 7th and not a higher rank overall. Me and my partner were in the dumps. After that humilating weekend, we got to work. We tore down the old design and started from scratch. We spent countless hours leading up to the competition building a device that was very inconsistent and had a 50/50 chance of working.

When we got to the event site, we were nervous as hell, but somehow, our timing was good enough that we got 1st overall in that event. The redemption arc was complete.

(sorry if this sounds a bit dramatic)
Ok this is epic 8-)

For me, it was either my team making it to nationals for the first time last year, or medaling in Ecology at states in my first year of Division B when my partner had to stop SO right before states.
