King’s CyberKnights

Over spring break, our CyberKnights competed at the PNW FRC Regional Champs against the best teams from Washington and Oregon taking 2nd in qualifications and 3rd overall.  This gave us enough district points to finish 8th overall in the district and advance to the FRC World Championship in Houston.  We were one of the few teams to “solo a rocket” which is a feat that not many teams nationwide are able to do.  The CyberKnights will be competing in Houston at the FRC Championships with matches started next Thursday and running through Saturday.  More information to follow!
