Ontario District Championships

Team Dave competed at the Ontario District Championships at the Hershey Centre in Mississauga, over the long weekend of April 13th to the 15th. By competing over the course of 2 1/2  days of qualifications and a day of playoffs our team managed to earn enough ranking points to steam line us to World Champs in Saint Louis!

On the teams’ first day of district champs our team was seeded low but climbed high in rank.We played at District Champs our 11 qualification matches with the 60 top Ontario teams.We started off after 22 matches in 53rd place and ended  our last day in 5th place. The stadium was packed and full of pep, although we had a rough start we still managed to finish this challenging race with a high rank. We began the day by asking teams 5406 The Celt-X and 5024 Raider Robotics, to join our alliance. We competed in the elimination round but unfortunately lost in quarter finals. But thankfully we overcame this challenge thanks to all of our hard work at our other district event fighting hard to gather up enough ranking points to qualify for World Championships in St Louis Missouri.  Our total District points put us in 12th place and the top 27 teams move on. Our team gave an amazingly strong performance and was recognized by many judges which the students really deserved.
