Regional Championship 2017

Hi, My name is Safal and this is my third year of robotics. Last year, a very memorable moment came to my team and I as we heard our team name being called at the championship to go somewhere. We didn’t know where we were going, but we knew we were going somewhere. This meant a lot to my team and I because we did a lot of hard work that season. After spending so many hours in robotics class, the hours finally paid off. We thought we wouldn’t go farther like we did the previous year. When they announced the Saint Louis qualifiers, we thought it was all over. None of us were sad, but we were all proud that our work got us this far into the competition. But, the person was still talking when he was on stage. He said that two more teams would be going farther in the competition. At this point, our team was just sitting back and feeling proud of what we did. But then, one sentence changed our lives. The person standing there said, “And for 3rd place, Team 684 STOBOR.” At this point, I was screaming. I don’t know about the rest of the team, but I was so proud of all our hard work. That one moment changed my life and I will never forget what had happened then.
