2013 Rookie Year - Success!
ShockWave wins at 2013 Girls Generation
"This last weekend (October 19th) at Girls Gen was one hell of a ride. Short version: We won. We were also first seed (only lost one match by 1 point). We scored 100% in autonomous except for one round that we had controller issues. We were doing 4 loads of frisbees per match. But the real story to tell is about the things the girls overcame: broken center drive axle, 2 shattered wheels, and a broken shooter. Phantom crawled it's way to victory!" by Jean Tenca. Go Girls! They did a great job under pressure to fix all and win.
