Robotics in Mustang Country

The Robotics team at North Moore High School officially kicked off their season last month with a preliminary, intra-county match held at Union Pines in their Auxiliary Gym.  Moore County Schools "Winter Warriors" FTC Competition showcased the new Velocity Vortex game board.

The "Mustang Maniacs" competed against teams from Union Pines, Pinecrest, New Century Middle and West Pine Middle.  After the 14 Alliance Matches, the top two teams (West Pine Middle and Union Pines) each chose a partnering team to join forces with for the final match of the afternoon.  The West Pine Middle team chose the Mustang Maniacs to join them in the finals.

In the final match of the afternoon, the WPM team and Mustang Maniacs came up just short.  The day was nothing short of a learning experience for all involved.  Our next Robotics Competition will be January 28th at Trinity School of Durham.
