We placed 2nd as finalists at the Kokomo City Indiana District Event resulting in our qualification for the Indiana FIRST District Championship. In addition, we earned the Quality Award at Kokomo too. The objective of Recycle Rush was to stack recycling totes at 6 maximum and place them on scoring platforms. Additional points were added for having a recycling container with or without a pool noodle inside. During qualification matches, bonus-cooperation points were rewarded at the end of the match for both alliances that worked together stack yellow totes in the middle of the field on the step. Points were deducted if pool noodles or "litter" were left in the auto zone at the end of the match.

The objective of Ariel Assist was to shoot large exercise balls in to high and low goals the far end of each field. Bonus points were awarded for robots within the same alliance that assisted each other by passing a ball down the field.

                    This year we competed in the Waterloo Regional in Waterloo, Canada and the Crossroads Regional in Terre Haute, IN. The objective of this game was to score frisbee discs in goals on the far end of the field. An additional goal is at the top of each pyramid, two on each side.
