CONGRATULATIONS to ASTonishing A and ASTonishing B, your hard work and dedication paid off!! Dec. 6-7 at Taipei American School both teams from AST performed well under pressure. Coaches from Vietnam, Kuala Lumpur, and Taipei American School complimented them on their robot design and their performance. Team B had a few losses early in the round-robin competition, but peaked at the right time, going into the elimination round they were on a winning streak. They were awarded the Think Award for their performance and a well documented autonomous program.
Team A learned a lot from the Mankato West visit and took their performance to another level. They were the highest-ranked team at the tournament! Going into the finals they had already qualified for the VEX Worlds Competition by scoring the tournament-high 57 points for the Skills Championship. They lost a tough battle against Raid Zero J from Taipei American School and Mad Max from the International School of Manilla in the best of 3 finals. During the awards ceremony team A qualified again for VEX Worlds by earning the Excellence Award! This is the second year in a row for ASTonishing A to go to Louisville, Kentucky for the VEX Worlds competition. They are excited to spend the last week in April at Worlds, meeting new friends and hanging out with the teams from Mankato West.
CONGRATULATIONS to all of the teams.
