Guided by their color changing LEDs, this team's robot EMERGED from the depths of the castle to shine on the field. Capturing its prey in a flash, this BEASTLY bot's glowing presence helped catapult this team high in the rankings. Congratulations to Nessie's cousin from Walled Lake TEAM #308 The Monsters.
