In March we headed off to UC Davis to compete in the Sacramento regional. Despite our poor rank, we were asked to join Alliance 5 for the playoffs. We won our quarterfinal matches but lost in the semifinals to the eventual regional champions. However, our team was awarded the Rookie All Star Award at the awards ceremony which secured our spot at the championships. We next competed at the Silicon Valley Regional. At SVR we ranked 7th overall after qualification matches and were the captains of Alliance 5. Thanks to the work of our scouting team we selected our partners for the playoffs and made it to the semifinals. We walked away with the Rookie High Seed Award and prepared for our upcoming trip to St. Louis.
At the end of April we flew to Missouri for the World Championships. We met amazing teams from around the world and had dinner with the other Jesuit teams who were attending. We competed in the Carver division and advanced to our division's playoffs, but we were eliminated in the quarterfinals. We stayed to watch the Carver division champions win the entire competition. We celebrated how far we had come during our rookie year and we look forward to our second season.
