McMaster University District Event

On the weekend of April 7th - 9th our team competed at the McMaster University District Event. The mascot was out interacting with people, and there was excitement in the pits and on the field. At the end of qualification we were ranked 9th with a score of 8 wins and 4 losses. This ranking lead us to becoming an alliance captain for the 7th place alliance where we were able to pick other teams to join us in the elimination round. We put up a hard fight in the quarterfinals but lost in a third tie-breaking match. Mr. Woods was nominated for the prestigious Woodie Flowers Award, which is an award that recognizes mentors who lead, inspire and empower using excellent communication skills. One of our students, Aaron Leszkowitz was recognized as a Dean's List semi-finalist. Dean’s List is an award to recognize the leadership and dedication of FIRST’s most outstanding secondary school students. Both Mr. Woods and Aaron will move on to the District Championships where they can win these awards for all of Ontario .
