Greater Pittsburgh Regional

From March 27-29th, SWAT attended the Greater Pittsburgh Regional at the California University of Pennsylvania; the girls were extremely excited to be going out of the country for their second regional of the 2014 competitive season. SWAT got off to a great start on Day 1, unloading their robot and passing inspection in record time; they worked hard to upgrade and finalize the shooter and intake functions, and used their problem solving skills to tackle all obstacles that stood in their way.1017037_703551396354501_2989350928888363674_nThe momentum and success continued on Day 2 of the event, with SWAT receiving the Chrysler Team Spirit Award and the girls managing to finalize their catapult design, shooting consistently and accurately into the high goal. By Day 3, Mildred XIII had an accurate high goal autonomous and a high-performance shooter and intake. SWAT was selected to be part of the 2nd seed alliance, and fought hard to earn themselves a place in the semifinals, where they were knocked out by the alliance that went on to win the event.

At the end of the event, SWAT was honored to receive the Regional Chairman’s award, allowing them to proceed to World Championships in St. Louis, Missouri. 10277463_703551603021147_5865908705589114730_n
