The second regional SWAT attended during the 2013 season was the Greater Toronto West Regional (March 28-30). We are pleased and humbled that both individuals from our team as well as the team as a whole were recognized by the judges on both Friday and Saturday afternoons.
On Friday night we congratulated our mentor, Mrs. Sils, for receiving the Woodie Flowers Finalist Award. The next day the journey ended for our robot in qualification matches. However, later on that afternoon one of our co-captains, Ankita Sharma, was selected as a FIRST Dean’s List Finalists for GTRW. We also took home our third Regional Chairman’s Award, which qualified us to go to the 2013 FIRST Championships in St. Louis! We had so much fun at the regional but we couldn’t have done it without the always amazing team of judges, volunteers and of course, our mentors and parents. We hope to see everyone again at the 2014 GTRW!
