Vex IQ 2019 World Championship Finals – 127Z Batman
We had gone the entire season with our highest score in competition being a 38, never having a 40. We came out of our 10 qualifying matches with an average of 38.625 which included five 40s! We couldn’t believe it!
The most nerve-racking match of the entire week for us was the division final. We didn’t want to get that far and not make it to Freedom Hall! Our driving wasn’t perfect in that match but we kept our cool and finished our part with plenty of time. The 41 put us into the finals.
In the finals we fully expected it would take a 41 to have a chance at a championship. We practiced it over and over with Dr. X and felt pretty confident we could do it. We were so relieved once we knew it was only going to take a 40 to win.
If you watch the video notice how we got bumped slightly as we were placing the last hub. That hub was so precariously placed the judges were studying it afterwards, trying to figure out how it actually stayed in place. It was the final piece of good luck to finish our season.
We give God all the glory for what we accomplished this year. It’s an experience we will never forget.
