Ah… it’s good to be back. Team 97 took a by year during the 2015 season. I mean you can’t really build the field before kickoff and compete without an unfair advantage. This year however, our wonderful alumni and the Georgia Tech RoboJackets handled all of the field building and game day responsibilities so that we could compete for real. Coincidentally, since the 2014 season, we are a completely new team. Every member of Fernbank LINKS this year is either a rookie or 2nd year. As a semi rookie team we performed fantastically.
Our robot, C. Harriet had some struggles in the practice matches, but came together once the qualification matches began. We made it into the wildcard match, only to fall just short of earning a spot in the playoffs.
The marketing team was a smashing success. After weeks of preparing a full exhibit and professional marketing presentation, we earned the 3rd Place BEST Award!
