Congratulations to the Whitewater High School FIRST Robotics Team Ferradermis on winning the first annual Laser Lights off-season event at Kettle Moraine High School from July 5-7, 2019. The team competed with and against 14 robots from around southeast Wisconsin, and ended up ranked 2nd after playing 13 qualification matches with a record of 9-3-1.
Ferradermis chose Team 930, the 4th ranked Mukwonago BEARS, and Team 1714, the 10th ranked MORE Robotics team from St. Thomas More High School, as their alliance partners for the playoffs. The Ferradermis alliance defeated the #1 alliance led by Team 2194, Fondy Fire from Fond du Lac, in two matches in the finals to claim the title.
Most teams, including Ferradermis, used this competition as an opportunity to rotate roles on the team, try out new drivers to replace students who had graduated, and give new members a taste of a robotics competition.
Ferradermis also had the opportunity to use this event as a fundraiser by running the concession stand. Thank you to all of the parents who helped!
