Rugby’s Team Metal Gear places 41st

By Staff | Apr 17, 2009

Rugby’s Team Metal Gear No. 878 finished 41st out of 51 teams at the FIRST Robotics regional competition held in Minneapolis earlier this month.

Lucas Schmaltz, a senior and member of the Rugby team, said the group encountered problems with the new programming system that operated the robot. During the preliminary competition, the robot did not work as effectively as planned.

Despite the struggles, it was a good experience to again compete with other schools involved in the program. Schmaltz said the three other North Dakota schools who had teams participating all reached the finals. They were Minot High, Northwood and Cando.
