2018 Windsor-Essex Great Lakes District

Team 1114 Simbotics and Simbot Smokescreen competed at our second event of the season, the Ontario District Windsor Essex Great Lakes Event, alongside 36 other very competitive teams. During the qualification matches, we earned a match record of 9 wins and 3 losses, placing us in the fifth seed. In alliance selections, we were picked by the first seed, Team 610 Crescent Coyotes and were joined by Team 6331 Sabotage to complete our alliance. During semi-finals we faced a highly determined fourth alliance and mechanical issues that were unable to be fixed in time for the tiebreaker match, resulting in the end of our playoffs run. Simbotics was thrilled to be awarded with the Gracious Professionalism Award sponsored by Johnson & Johnson at the end of the event. Congratulations to finalists, Team 4936 Viral Vortex, Team 5505 V2 Robotics, and Team 4405 The Atoms Family, as well as the event champions, Team 772 Sabre Bytes Robotics, Team 33 Killer Bees, Team 6875 Build A Dream Robotics - Amazon Warriors, and to our alliance partner, Team 6331 Sabotage for winning the District Chairman’s Award.
