2010 FTC Championship

The 2010 Maryland FIRST Tech Challenge Championship was held December 11 at the College of Southern Maryland in La Plata.  Thirty-four teams from Maryland and a special guest team from the US Armed Services School in Aviano, Italy, competed for top honors.  A FIRST LEGO League Qualifier was held the same day. 

Top honors went to the alliance of teams 2843 (Under the Son), 3113 (Craftsmen) and 7 (Tactical Sheep), who won a very close final match against a strong alliance of teams 4240 (4-H Techno Clovers), 2818 (G-Force) and 2897 (Grizzl-E).  Teams 2843 and 2818 won the right to advance to the FTC Championship in St. Louis in April.

Our thanks to all the competitors, coaches, sponsors, judges and volunteers that helped make the day and this season a success.  Very special thanks to our FTC Affiliate partner, College of Southern Maryland, for hosting the event and to Jeff Tjiputra for his years of support for FIRST and robotics in Maryland.
