World Championships

Terra Nova Team 6002, Basilisks, Becomes First Northern California team to Captain Alliance at FTC World Championships
(At least we think so.  If anyone knows differently, please tell us)
Terra Nova (the Basilisks) advances to the FTC World Championships for the 3rd straight year, this year as Northern California State Champions.  The Basilisks were briefly in 1st place (out of 64) after their qualification matches, but fall to 3rd place after all teams competed.  When #1 chose #2 to be alliance partners for the quarterfinals, Terra Nova chose Combustible Lemons and N.U.T.S. to join their now second-seeded alliance.  Combustible Lemons tried their hardest to get their malfunctioning robot working, but couldn't, eliminating the alliance after just 2 matches.  Their 3rd place Edison Division finish put the rookie team in the 99.8th percentile of the close to 3,000 teams that competed this year.
