After the old apexfrc.com proved to be too much of a pain to update, this new site was born. Though it may lack animations and fancy fonts, the site effectively lays out the Apex business plan and is much easier to edit. Welcome to Apex's new home!

To catch up, here's some info about our 2016 season (in reverse chronological order):

WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
Apex Robotics, one of many rookies to reach World's, was assigned to the Curie field. Apex ranked number 4 on the field and partnered with 3310, 2168, and 5940. Although the alliance was eliminated in Quarterfinals, Apex had a blast and loved meeting teams from around the world. Apex Robotics also received one of four Rookie All-Star Awards, and tied with Peddie School Robotics for Highest Rookie Seed out of all rookies at the event.

PNW DISTRICT CHAMPIONSHIP
With a repaired robot and extra practice, Apex Robotics ranked first out of the top 64 teams from Washington and Oregon at District Championship. Unfortunately, the #1 alliance was eliminated in Quarterfinals, however, Apex scored enough District Points by ranking to qualify for the World Championship.

PHILOMATH - WEEK 4
Only 4 students traveled to Oregon for Philomath, but they're glad they did. After the discovery of a loose wire which was causing one side of the robot to drag, Apex leaped to 10th place and was the first pick of the 3rd alliance. Apex, alongside partners 2046 Bear Metal and 2811 Stormbots, won the event.

CENTRAL WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY - WEEK 3
Apex showed up with hanging capability for week 3. With scaling on their side, Apex ranked 22nd and was the first pick of the 8th alliance.

AUBURN MOUNTAINVIEW - WEEK 1
Apex Robotics competed at the Auburn Mountainview District Event in Week 1. Apex ranked 24th and was the 2nd pick of the 8th alliance.

BUILD SEASON
Apex chose four guidelines from which to build. We chose to make our robot Simple, Competitive, Robust, and Proud. With these goals in hand, the team built two robots, affectionately named Wonky and SUBZ3RO .
