FIRST Robotics Competition


In 2007, the game was Rack 'n' Roll.


This year's robot was Thunderhorse. It was one of the two robots built in the beginning of the season, but by the early weeks Thunderhorse was the that was chosen to be continued to work on. Patrick Harrington and Michael Strain put their two ideas together to form one great robot after beating out Randy's idea. As Valerie Strain states, "it was a fun year to watch so many different designs come together". The highly effective manipulator and the team's secret, unobtainium, seem to make this robot very effective overall.

The team also attempted to build another robot, named the Nimble Gimbal, but due to the complexity of its design, the robot was not able to be built in time for it to be finalized before competition.

Field Crew


In 2007,the teamonly attended the Peachtree Regional.

Peachtree Regional

At the Peachtree Regional the Robo Lions were one of the first teams to score all the way around the game scoring element ending a match with a total of 256 points (the highest score of the event).

The team made it all the way to the semi-finals, but due to our opponents’ defensive tactics, our alliance of 1746 and 1057 lost.

The team's final ranking was 6th out of 46, with a win-loss-tie ratio of 6-2-0.[1]


Off-Season Activities

Here are off-season activities that the team participated in or held while the competing season was not occurring.

On June 24th, 2007 the team was invited to have a demo of the robot at the "International Society for Technology in Education" in Atlanta along with several other Georgia teams. The team drove the robot on a replica Rack 'n Roll field while talking to teachers of high school and middle school about incorporating robotics into the curriculum.
