04/16/2004: "TRC ranked 20th in the Galileo Division"mood: Looking up
After a rocky start going 1-2, the TRC won three games in a row, pulling themselves from the pits into the spotlight with three excellent matches. The reasons for the turnaround are numerous; the most important is pure luck: Our first three matches were with robots that could do precious little (which at this level is rare). Our next three partners were each capable hangers, and we routed our opponents in each of those matches with scores of 150, 150, and 110. One of these matches was with the current umber one seed, and we hope we caught their eye. We think with us and one more hanger, we could go far in the finals, just like in the pacific northwest regional.
Catch the webcast on Saturday from http://robotics.nasa.gov. We could very well be in the finals and perhaps even the next national champions.
