Warren Hills Competition
On March 25th and 26th, MORT participated in the first ever FMA District Warren Hills Event, and we had so much fun! Although we did maintain the #2 rank for the majority of the qualification matches, by the end MORT obtained the #1 spot and ended up being alliance 1 captain!
During alliance selections, MORT selected team 1676, the Pascack Pioneers, and team 8588, the Tech Devils to be a part of Alliance 1. Unfortunately, in match 1 of round 1, alliance 1 lost to alliance 8 with a score of 129-123. Due to a coding issue for team 8588, alliance 1 implemented a backup team, Blue Bears (6943), to compete with them for the remainder of their matches.
In match 5 of round 2, alliance 1 was able to win against alliance 4 with a score of 118-77! This allowed them to compete in match 10 of round 3. In this match, however, alliance 1 lost to alliance 2 with a score of 121-110, ultimately eliminating them from the competition.
Although both MORT and MORT Beta did not advance to the finals, this event was still a success for both teams. Beta won the Imagery award for the second time, and MORT won the Impact Award! Additionally, a big congratulations to our head coach, Don Biery, for winning the Donald Bowers award!
Thank you to everyone involved for making this event a success!
