Two more VEX Robotics teams qualify for Provincials

The SAC VEX Robotics teams recently capitalized on their chances at the final Provincial qualifier tournament of the year. The event was hosted in Ottawa during the Lunar New Year celebrations.
Through previous qualifier tournaments, SAC already had the 97779X team qualified for Provincials, but the 97779A team was hoping to qualify because, at their last competition, they earned the number one ranking among all schools in Ontario on the World Skills website.
All the teams encountered good and bad “luck” throughout the tournament, and for part of the competition, team 97779B held steady to first place. The SAC teams travelled with a VEX team from St. Anne’s School (SAS), and after the qualifying matches, SAC team 97779A was honoured to be chosen by the SAS team as an alliance partner for the playoffs. The SAC-SAS alliance made it to the Quarter Finals. The SAC 97779B team and 97779X team went even further and met in a head-to-head semi-final match.
Later, all teams enjoyed a Lunar New Year dinner together and celebrated the teams’ successes. The final results saw both team 97779A and team 97779B qualify for Provincials. In total, three of the four VEX Robotics teams have qualified for the Ontario Provincial tournament, which is an incredible achievement.
Congratulations to all SAC teams:
97779A: Brandon Chow, Raymond Hao, Terry Li, John Qing, Nick Wang, Josh Wang, Tiger Wu, David Yang, Stephen Yoon, James Zhou
97779B:  Harrison Chen, Eli Chin, Austin Lee, Jongbin Lee, Bennett Leung, Alex Tsoi
97779X: Eric Cai, Charles Wang, Chen Yu Zhang, Eason Zhao
97779Y: Nicholas Chan, Eric Lin, Richard Wang, Justin Zhou
