FIRST Robotics Team 2491 – No Mythic

3rd Place Alliance and awarded the North Star Regional’s Gracious Professionalism Award

This last weekend, we competed in the North Star Regional, and in a field of 60 teams, we made it to finals as a member of the 6th ranked alliance. After two no-holds-barred matches, we upset the 3rd seeded alliance. In semi-finals, we were defeated by the alliance that went on to win the regional.
No Mythic was honored to receive the North Star Regional’s Gracious Professionalism Award, a reward that recognizes a team’s hard work and unique ethos. This award is given to a team that that encourages high-quality work, emphasizes the value of others, and respects individuals and the community – a team that competes like crazy yet treats it’s allies and competition with equal respect, building community and camaraderie on and off the field – and this year, a team that loves purple and brings their own unicorn!
