2023 UNH District Event
March 25th - 26th
On Saturday March 25th, CHAOS competed at the UNH District Event, hosted at the UNH Durham campus in Durham, NH. This was our second event of the Charged Up year and we competed with 40 teams from around the New England area. Throughout the first day of the event, CHAOS had a slower start. We ended up being placed 11th in ranking, after going 7-5 in our qualification matches. This event, we were graciously selected by the fourth ranked team, 58 The Riot Crew from South Portland, ME. To round off our alliance, we then selected team 501 The PowerKnights from Manchester, NH. We went 4-3 in the new double elimination tournament, making it to the finals. This was our first finals appearance of the season.
Although CHAOS didn't take home a win, we as a team had a very successful event. Bringing home a finalist award, CHAOS also qualified for the New England District Championship in Springfield, MA on April 6th-8th. On a non-technical aspect, CHAOS was the recipient of the FIRST Impact Award. This award is based on the overall impact that a team has made within their community, as well as the promotion of FIRST Robotics. This award gives it's recipient a direct path to the New England District Championship. Winning the FIRST Impact Award also gave CHAOS their first blue banner in over a decade. CHAOS will be able to compete for this award on a regional level at the New England District Championship. Aside from the team awards, one of our amazing juniors, Mia Cunningham, was selected as a Dean's List Semi-Finalist. This award is based on individual leadership within the student's team and overall community. Mia will now be considered for a Dean's List Finalist Award at the New England District Championship.
We want to thank UNH Durham for hosting this event. We would also like to thank all the amazing volunteers for helping make this event possible. We also would like to give a special thanks to FRC team 509 Red Storm for helping our team throughout the event while we solved some of our electrical issues. Their help was a major component to our overall success during this event.
