AZ West Regional Results and Houston

Team AZTECH competed in the AZ West Regional from April 4th to April 6th and won 7 out of 12 qualification matches. After the qualification rounds we were the sixth seeded alliance and we went on to defeated the 3rd, 2nd, and 1st seeded alliance, making us the regional winner. We also won the creativity award for our ability to somersault onto the level 3 platform. Since we won our regional, we will be going to the championships in Houston from April 17th to April 20th. We however are going to need a lot of money to go to Houston (registration, transportation, food, etc.) so if you could support us by donating to our Go Fund Me campaign that would be greatly appreciated. We thank you for your support through this journey. https://www.gofundme.com/aztech-robotics-world-competition
