Lone Star Central Regional

Spectrum 3847, the St. Agnes and Strake Jesuit engineering team, was the recipient of the prestigious Quality Award at the FIRST FRC (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) and a Regional Finalist at the Lone Star Central Regional Tournament held at Strake Jesuit College Preparatory.

“We are honored to have received the Quality Award sponsored by Motorola Foundation. The award celebrates machine robustness in concept and fabrication. Our robot Gamma was built with a very detailed plan in mind to withstand the rigors of competition. FRC is often called the “the hardest fun you’ll ever have. ” said Spectrum 3847 Coach/Mentor Allen Gregory. “In addition, the team won the Engineering Inspiration Award at an earlier tournament and came away with a berth in the 2017 FIRST World Championship. We look forward to the global competition George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston from April 19 to 22, 2017.”

Spectrum 3847 was ranked 3 with a record of 12-5-0 and advanced to the finals in an alliance with AwtyBots #5829 and Screaming Chickens #3997. They formed a strong alliance and worked their way to the finals. ​They lost the finals to three award winning teams Robonauts #118, Texas Torque #1477 and TCAT #5526. All six teams will join the global competition at the Championships in April.
