Two Goldendale robotics teams, 5250W and 5250T, formed an alliance during Saturday's tournament in Sunnyside to win the championship and brought home five trophies.

After the preliminary round 5250W, Jade Smith and Cameron Mains, were ranked in first place, and 5250T, Gabriel Wadsack, Dianne Toledo and Cameron Kenny were ranked in third place. Alliance selection allowed them to combine forces into the number 1 ranked alliance.

After defeating the number 8 and number 4 alliance, they went into the final match against the number 3 alliance, in a best-two-of-three rounds match. Goldendale took the first round by five points, lost the second round by two points, and the third round was too close to call. In the end, Goldendale was announced as the winner and tournament champions.

Smith and Mains were awarded the Excellence award, qualifying them for the State Championship in March and the Judges award. Wadsack, Toledo, and Kenny were awarded the Design award. Both teams received the Tournament Champions award.

Goldendale teams 5250R and 5250P also competed, ending in 10th and 13th place after prelims.

Goldendale robotics teams will be in action again this weekend when they host the home robotics tournament on Saturday, Nov. 4 at Goldendale High School. Preliminary rounds will start at 9:30 am, and finals will start after alliance selection in the afternoon. The tournament is free to attend.
