AIA Barrett Foundation Robotics State Tournament

The Lemon Bots’ 127A team became Arizona’s winningest team this season, with 6 Tournament Champion titles in Nothing But Net. The team’s win on Saturday, alongside first-seed alliance captain 5090A and second-pick 8235 was made sweeter by an alliance score of 361 with 5090A, the 16th highest in the world and the highest ever in the state, and the reception of the Sportsmanship award.

The synergy between 5090A, a heavy but accurate full-court shooter, and 127A, the fastest robot at the tournament and an adept field scorer, was ultimately unmatched by any alliances in eliminations. 127A’s speed allowed it to not only hoard balls in the protected area near the alliance’s home tiles, but to also feed 5090A’s shooter while sweeping balls in the field to shoot on its own.

The Lemon Bots are looking forward to expanding their team next year, with the help of sponsors.
