During the nearly three hours of qualifying matches. Each of the two teams was constantly earning points to enter the elimination and finals round in which they were teamed up with other school districts. At the end of the qualifying matches, the Cros-Lex teams ranked second and seventh. This ranking gave each of the two teams a huge advantage by allowing them to team up with one of the top six teams. After creating alliances, both Cros-Lex groups were in the top two teams.
Entering the elimination round, the Cros-Lex teams were prepared and excited to have a chance to win the tournament. Over forty minutes, six alliances participated in an elimination process which started with the lower ranked teams trying to win two out of three matches each. Both Cros-Lex teams were on opposing sides, and each tried their best. In the end, after an exciting round in the finals, Team A won first place and Team B won second place. In addition, Team A of the Cros-Lex Robotic Club earned the Sportsmanship Trophy for helping their teammates’ robot by assisting to pick it up after it tipped over.
