At the Ontario Championship, three out of four of our teams qualified for VEX WORLDS, held in Louisville Kentucky in April 2018. All four teams worked very hard throughout the day by consistently winning matches or in the skills arena achieving a higher skills score as both aspects could qualify us for Worlds.
Our A team completed multiple skills runs throughout the seasons and achieved a skills score of 162 points (102 in driver and 60 in programming). They achieved a high position in the skills ranking before even entering provincials. Their qualification for Worlds occurred due to their accurate programming and driver skills.
Our B team competed throughout the day with multiple problems in the robot, however they were able to win a few matches. However, as they fixed their robot and learned the best way to compete with that type of robot, they were able to achieve much more. They were selected by 5225A, The Pilons as alliance partners with 99000Y, the Vikings. They competed strong throughout the entire elimination matches and were declared as ONTARIO PROVINCIAL CHAMPIONS as they won both Final Matches.
