In 2008 FIRST released the game Overdrive. The objective of this game was to have your robot move counterclockwise around a track with a ball and pass a finish line. The balls the teams had to manipulate was 1m in diameter and they could score extra points if they could throw it over a high bar.
2008 was the first year our team every competed in a FRC event. As a rookie team we did fairly well, as we ended finishing in 26th place out of the entire state of Arizona. Also we made it to the quarter finals of the Arizona Regional.
