The Denis Morris Catholic High School High Voltage Robotics Team will compete against teams from around the world in St. Louis, Missouri, later this month.

The team was ranked second out of 47 teams at the Greater Toronto East Regional Competition, was picked to be part of the Number One Alliance and held a world-record high score at the time. When the eliminations were completed, the High Voltage team came away with a regional win – a team first – and were awarded the Creativity Award for robot design.

The team then travelled to the New York Tech Valley Regional in Troy, NY, March 19-21, and repeated their Number 2 ranking and Number 1 Alliance in the elimination round. The Alliance team sailed through the Quarterfinal round, but their partnering team’s robot had mechanical issues in the Semifinal round, making it a three-on-two competition. The result was a heartbreaking one-point loss which kept them out of the finals.

The High Voltage Team will travel to Windsor April 2-4 for the Windsor-Essex Great Lakes Regional Competition before the World Championships in St. Louis April 22-25.
