Win or Lose, Cyber Knights Making the Best of Their Experience

Expectations were high entering the FIRST Robotics championship in St. Louis, but the primary goal for members of the team remains having fun and gaining valuable experience.

Southington High School Senior Eric Corriveau knew the competition was going to be tough at the FIRST Robotics championships in St. Louis - after all, they were going up against the best teams representing 29 countries worldwide.

For members of the Cyber Knights, team 195, just being able to face the best of the best has been an encouraging feeling and win or lose, the team has already benefited from the tournament.

"It's something where you constantly learn and it's an event where you know you will take something away no matter what happens," Corriveau said earlier this month.

The Cyber Knights placed 12th in the Galileo division, with a final record of 8-2, and were also recipients of the Cooperation Award for their efforts in working alongside other teams and their sportsmanship during the competition. 

Be sure to check out the video of this year's competition.

As a correction, we went 8-2 in the Galileo division, and finished the day ranked 12th.

Thanks Eric - nice job to you and the team as a whole. We have made a change since the final press release came out. There was a mix up and the 2010 scores were posted under 2011 live results, I was told by committee members. They have corrected that on the website as well, which also lists the award winners.
