Austin Villa at the US Open 2005
The team is just getting back from the 2005 US Open where we placed third. While we lost our semifinal match 1-0 to Penn, we played an exhibition match against the eventual first place team, CMU, and won 2-1. In official play, we outscored our opponents 24-1. With a little bit of luck we could have wound up in 2nd or even 1st. We're coming home with a lot of ideas for improvement though, so we're looking forward to Robocup 2005 in Osaka!
