Last week, we were participating in our last games of OCCRA season, our Diversity game in Rochester Adams and the last game to accumulate scores at Our Lady of the Lake Catholic High school. The Diversity game is a chance for everybody to participate actively in the driving and the building of the robot. While normally, only a certain number of group members can join, The Diversity game, especially for small teams like ours, allow everyone the chance to do something other than their usual posts.
In the female drive team was Jenna as our human player, Lily as our driver and Elena as our operator. The team worked amicably despite all being relatively new members. In the co-ed team, we have Paul working as the operator, Mike, our team leader and drive advisor. Additionally, Lily and Jenna made a returning appearance after their stunning performance in the all-girl matches. The last matches were all male matches, featuring Zach, our programmer and operator; Paul, our driver, and last but not least, Giovanni, our human player. Our team had remarkable teamwork and had learned to work together very well, which was one of the main contributing factors on how brilliant and smooth the matches went. As always, the 2612 Corsair Robotic Team volunteers for queuers. Lucy and Dewayne are energetic and dedicated people, and though they have had some difficulties juggling their team duties and queuing, The Corsair's PR team have accomplished their job beautifully.
Last Thursday, we had our game at Our Lady of the Lake High School. It is the last game to gain scores, and we worked arduously in anticipation of it. Thanks to the build team, which make up of Trevor, Michael, Lily, Paul, and Zach, have added many new features and updates to the bot, which resulted in a much more polished and stable robot than ever before!
Though the OCCRA season is ending soon, Team 2612 Corsair Robotics is still giving our best effort to improve and advance to be the best we could be, one day at a time.
Let’s go, Corsairs!
