On October 1, Team 1208 attended the Gateway Robotics Competition at Hazelwood West High School. Bringing last year’s robots, the teams competed in the First Stronghold game to help new drivers and members gain experience. Competing with two robots as Team 1208 and 1207, the Metools started out slow but quickly improved as matches continued. Both teams joined strong alliances with Team 1208 getting picked by the fourth place team and Team 1207 getting chosen by the third place team. While Team 1208 was eliminated in the second round, Team 1207 and their alliance continued to place second! Congrats to all the Robotics teams who competed!
