Simbotics, Team 1114 entered Greater Toronto West Regional as our final regional for the 2012 season. After two regional wins, Simbotics were hoping to claim a third. Simbot Jordan had a successful Friday filled with eventful matches, coming out with a record of 6-1 and 10 co-opertition Points. Our team was also awarded with our third website award of the season. Congratulations to our website team for this tremendous achievement!
