Go Lake Monsters!
Mentor Nick knows how to best wear Lake Monsters blue and show team pride. Good luck to the Lake Monsters who are at the Central Washington Regional today getting the robot ready for competition on Thursday and Friday, March 22-23.
Ethan brought a mini trike he built to practice over the weekend. The Lake Oswego Armory is the perfect spot to test the robot and Ethan's driving skills. Very cool ride!
Here's a view you don't see everyday: the robot's view of Nick, Darrell and Ankit working on the robot.
Here is the photo of the drive team in the Oregonian (Ankit, Stevie and Kristin with Julia off camera loading Frisbees into the robot). It says it all: skill, drive, commitment and excitement at being a part of the FIRST experience.
In the second photo, Ankit's able hands drive the robot during competition. GO LAKE MONSTERS!

The Lake Monster drive team was featured in the Oregonian in a photo essay article on the Oregon Regionals. This is an amazing view into the excitement the students experience in the heart of the action on the field. We are so proud of you, Stevie, Ankit, Kristin and Julia (who was not included in the photo because she was loading Frisbees into the robot).

Congratulations to the Lake Monsters, who finished 7th out of 59 teams in the FRC Oregon Regionals qualification rounds. The team moved on to the quarterfinals, choosing the Scalawags FRC 1359 and the Stormbots FRC 2811 teams to be a part of a 6th seed alliance. The alliance was eliminated in the 3rd round of the quarterfinals. This is a personal team best for the Lake Monsters in making it to the Top 8. We are so proud of you Lake Monsters!
At the end of the first day of FRC competition at the Oregon Regionals, Lake Monsters are sitting in 8th place out of 59 teams. It's been an exciting day, and we ended it with what we do best: eating pizza and strategizing our next day. You are awesome Lake Monsters!
In Match 21, all three robots on the Red Alliance did 10-point climbs on the pyramid. Red takes the match 81-61. Go Lake Monsters, FRC 4125 and FRC 955!
