Morris FIRST Robotics Team Wins Philly Regional
Good morning Alumni and Friends,
This past weekend the Morris FIRST Robotics team won the Philadelphia FIRST Robotics Regional at Temple University and will now travel to Atlanta to compete in the upcoming FIRST Championship, April 16-18 at the Georgia Dome. Click below for more information
I am so proud of this extraordinary group of students who showed such determination in defeating the BEST team alliances along the way to win the Championship. In the Quarterfinals the team beat the 3rd seed, Semifinals, the 2nd seed and of course in winning it all we beat the 1st seed
I also want to share with you that many, many members of MOE and team # 56 came over to me to say how grateful they were that we picked them for an alliance.
We will now prepare to compete in our 7th consecutive FIRST Championship in Atlanta. I hope those alumni who live in the Atlanta area will come to show their support.
We are also very appreciative to the New York Yankees for paying our airfare and our four nights at the Omni Hotel at CNN Center while attending the FIRST Robotics Championships in Atlanta.
