Eagle Robotics Advances to State

Mount Paran Christian School hosted the FIRST Tech Challenge Northwest Georgia League Robotics Tournament in January. Robotics teams from the Etowah and North Georgia leagues battled as the 20-week regular season came to a close. Eagle Robotics was represented by its two teams, 11364 Diamond Plate and 7373 Carbon Fiber.

During the seeding round of qualification matches, 11364 Diamond Plate achieved a 3-win, 2-loss record, advancing to the playoffs as captain of the fourth seed alliance. Diamond Plate's season concluded as they collected second Place in the Design Award but were eliminated in the semifinal round of robot competition. We are proud of the growth and achievements this team of 8 freshmen and sophomores made, advancing so deeply into the competition and making progress in mechanical and programming goals.

The MPCS varsity team, 7373 Carbon Fiber, traversed the qualification round with a 4-win, 1-loss record, clinching a spot as the second seed, first pick. Carbon Fiber made short work of its opponents in the semifinals but were ultimately defeated in the finals. Despite this match loss, Carbon Fiber was decorated at the award ceremony with the Inspire Award, which is the highest tournament award, making the team the overall tournament winner and highest seed for both leagues. 7373 Carbon Fiber now advances to the Georgia State championship in February. Special recognition to our accomplished seniors, C. Bethel, N. Burnett, S. Morton, and J. Stephens, who exemplified gracious professionalism throughout the event.
