FIRST Robotics in New England 2024: BSU District Event

Updated: Mar 31

Four down, seven to go! FIRST Robotics Competition teams in New England put on another show this weekend with CRESCENDO presented by the Gene Haas Foundation!

Bridgewater State University hosted 36 teams from Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New Hampshire during this Week 2 event in southern Massachusetts.

High scores are just getting higher! With scores of 97 in qualification matches and 108 in playoffs (129 with penalties!) we can tell the competition is going to keep getting stronger as weeks go by.
