CRUSHing It at Chezy Champs

September 22, 2017

WHAT: Chezy Champs Off Season Competition


WHEN: Friday, September 15th to Sunday, September 17th, 2017


WHERE: Bellarmine Preparatory Academy in San Jose, California


RESULTS: In spite of some mechanical trouble, CRUSH placed in 14th overall, with 6 wins and 4 losses. When it was time for the alliance selection, the number one seeded team, FRC team 254, the Cheesy Poofs, chose CRUSH 1011 to join their alliance. The alliance was completed with FRC Team 696, Circuit Breakers, and FRC Team 5104, BreakerBots. Elimination matches were really challenging and we found ourselves having to play a third tiebreaker matches in semi-finals and finals. In the end, we won the tie breaking matches and went on to win the event with our alliance. It was an incredible experience to be able to compete with such amazing teams, make new friends, and see old ones, too. CRUSH is so happy to bring home another win for our team, school, and Arizona.

On Attending Her First Event: “It was really exciting but it could be nerve racking at times. It was amazing to see how many people actually were there and to see how nice everybody was.”


On Winning Chezy Champs: “It was really exciting and I was really happy for everybody.”


On Her Job at Chezy Champs: “I helped with getting out the scouting sheets for the scouts and getting scouting data to our strategist and drive team. It helped keep us organized and know which teams were best to ally with.”


Final Thoughts: “It was just really fun!”


Ruben, Driver, 3rd Year Member

On Competing with the “Best in the West”: “It definitely showed through. It was one of the most competitive qualification runs we have gone through that really demonstrated several different alliances of different power. The drive teams were well organized and professional yet friendly.”


On Elims Tiebreaker Matches: “Going to three matches makes it exciting and definitely keeps you on the edge but also keeps you working hard and showing that everything is working right. In the end it’s nothing except worrying about the next match.”


On All Our New Members: “Its really cool seeing the new members who haven’t been in FRC or FIRST overall and getting to see not just our robot but many robots on the real field.”


On Competing With Friends: “Over the past few events we have become close to a lot of the teams who were at Chezy and it was cool to see them and us progress over time. Pairing up with the Cheesy Poofs, who we had just competed against at the Festival of Champions, was invaluable as we got to see the other side. We got to experience how they do things.”

Final Thoughts:"In the end it’s not just about winning, it’s about the connections we formed and the things we learned with these world renown teams.”
