April 3rd-5th we went out to York, PA for the inaugural FTC East Super Regional. We had advanced at the Hudson Valley Regional for coming in 3rd place for the Inspire Award. It was a tremendous honor to be able to compete at such a high level. Many of these teams were our role models in our first season!
Needless to say, the competition was fierce. We only won one of the eight qualifying matches, although several times we only lost by several blocks. Despite this, we were able to keep up our morale and enjoy the event. We made new friends and got to joke about with old ones. Between hotel pool parties with the RoboSpartans, balloon-bombing the pits of our CT State Championship alliance, and dancing our feet off at the Super Party, it was a great weekend.
We were humbled to be named finalists for the Connect Award, and were proud to see our friends the Icebreakers win it. With luck, we’ll be back at this event next season!
