Continuing on with the 2016 season, team 1114 showed their stuff in the Waterloo Regional! This highly competitive event features 30 teams, all fighting for their chance to move on to the First Robotics World Championships in St. Louis, MO. Due to the communication and repeated teamwork of our team, we scored over 100 points in almost all qualification matches. We finished qualifications as the first seed, after an impressive 11-2 win/loss ratio. Governor Simcoe partnered up with our sister team, 2056 Orchard Park Robotics, and rookie team, 5912 Heritage Robotics to take on the other elimination round alliances. Together we finished as regional finalists, with 1114 taking home the Gracious Professionalism Award, sponsored by Johnson & Johnson. After the event, the team continued preparation for both the coming regionals and the world championships, which was just 2 months away.
