Cold Fusion achieves outstanding results

After two days of intense competition, Team 1279, along with their alliance partners, advanced to the final round of the playoffs at the Mt Olive competition. Cold Fusion posted a 7-5 record after 12 qualifying round matches which earned them a rank of 16 out of 37 teams. The team was then selected to join the alliance of Team 5992 from Seton Hall Prep and Team 303 from Bridgewater which were ranked 1 and 3, respectively, after the qualifying round.

After losing the first of three quarter-final round matches, the alliance came back and won the next two matches to advance to the semi-finals. In the semi-finals, Cold Fusion's alliance swept two matches and secured a trip to the finals. In the finals, we were swept for an unfortunate ending to an otherwise outstanding weekend. This was the first time in 10 years that Cold Fusion advanced to the finals of a regular season competition. Congratulation to all for a great performance.

Team 1279 competes again this weekend at Bridgewater-Raritan High School. Qualifying matches are from 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM on Saturday and 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM on Sunday. Please come out to support Cold Fusion Nation.
