Robotics at Regions: Day Two is underway!!!

Joining teams from Carlton and Blooming Prairie, B-B-E's Blue Alliance defeated a Red Alliance team by a 94 to 70 score. Three ranking points put them over the top when the final scoring was tabulated. The ranking points were earned when Carlton and Blooming Prairie's robots completed a successful mid-air "hang" with their grappling booms on the overhead bars.

Their alliance lost to the Blue alliance team by a 91-14 score. The Blue Alliance earned three ranking points to build the huge margin of victory.
