Wheatley Cybercats are Finalist in their First Competition of the Year!

On Saturday, November 18th, the Wheatley Cybercats competed in the 6th annual Half Hollow Hills FRC Invitational. One of the purposes of this early competition is to give robotics teams across the region an opportunity to experience the demands of a competition before heading into the Spring season competitions.

In the spirit of the off-season invitational, many younger team members got the chance to be a driver, pilot, or gear feeder— all of which are very high-stress positions.

The Cybercats were able to make it all the way to the finals matches, winning 4 matches during the single elimination games, and losing the best of three finals matches by a close margin.

This is the second year in a row that the Cybercats were finalists at the HHH Invitational. This is also the second year that the Cybercats competed at the HHH Invitational, meaning that they have a 100% finalist rate!

As Steamworks comes to a close, we begin to prepare for FRC PowerUp and for our competitions in April!

  • Zachary Azevedo
