The team won three of their five official matches. In an unofficial extra match, the ACC team almost single-handedly beat a team of two other robots with their single robot, with a score of 26 points for ACC vs. 28 points by the other two robots combined.

Team members did a great job of making improvements to the robot between matches, and they collaborated and strategized well with other school teams when they competed together.
