1923: WE DID IT!

My team has NEVER been in the Elim rounds at an official FRC event, ever. Seeing our match scores was possibly the most exciting thing in the world. I think you can tell.


Thanks, 2753 and 2344. Y'all rock.

Lol I see MORT in the back realizing we just got beat. That redo was unfortunate but oh well, we had a good run. I expect to work with 1923 in Philly or just have another rematch against you guys there. We'll bring more heat.

First time making Elims and taking it all the way for the regional win has got to be a special feeling and I think this picture says it all. Congratulations, I'm sure it will be the first of many

I'm so glad to see how much you guys have really come together this year. An outstanding group of students, an amazing mentor, and great support has truly helped demonstrate what you're truly capable of. I'm very proud of you guys, and I'm very hopeful that your success can turn around into more support for your team in the future.

To Libby and the 1923 crew great job and congratulations on your first FRC regional win it is quite a feat especially the first time. I know that 1923 has been through a lot of changes and hardships since their inception its great to see them get one in the win column. Hopefully, I'll be seeing the whole team in Atlanta this year and keep up the good work for years to come.

Jane-

the reason for my CD user title...

Since we don't have school teachers, we're made up of a core group of parents that support us. We build in a garage in a student's house, and they pay for our propane heaters, our food, and they drove us out to 103's facility every weekend to drive practice. We love them for their support.

Our team parents stuck by us all weekend. They were in the stands, making all our kids were exactly where they had to be and keeping things in line. Most especially is our 'team mom'...my mom. She has been the complete support for the team all 4 years.

Before our last final match, I looked up to her, and said "Mom, this one's for you."

...and we won.

You can see some of our parents in the back cheering. They were so happy for us.

That's really quite an amazing story. So much can go wrong at a regional but sometimes the Robot Gods make it so and clearly it happened for you guys

To put a little perspective on things, Purdue FIRST had their first regional win over the weekend and it took ten years to do it. Plenty of close calls, but this was the first.

Congratulations!

Looking at the pictures Libby linked, it struck me how often over the years Wayne has shown up in photos standing behind successful drivers. 1923 is lucky indeed to have this great mentor on board.

That picture is Priceless. I had no idea of how much you guys had to go through to even compete this year until I talked to Wayne. We were standing about 10 feet away from your pit and he said "look, I don't do anything, it's all them." I turned around and saw a fury of activity in the pits and I think everyone was a student. You guys should be really proud.

One last thing, I think this picture should be titled "We're not done yet!".... See you in Philly.

Congrats 1923 on a success. I know Wayne put in many hours helping out (and probably about as many 'commuting' to help lol) and it definitely has paid off. I know the team has quite a crazy couple of years and it was very exciting news to hear a nice reward for all the students sticking it out and staying dedicated. Great job guys!

Thank you all for the congratulations. Coming from my friends on Chief Delphi it means a lot.

1923's four years have been an incredible journey. As the team's founder I am so proud of every single student that's come through our program.

I'm sad that this year marks my time with 1923 coming to an end, but I know that with the new support in our community (who knew a trophy would get us in three papers?!!?), the underclassmen from the team will be able to keep it going and make me one very proud alumni.

Plus I think having other NJ teams just be more aware of your team will help out a lot too. We'll definitely help out whenever you need it in any situation. Just let me know. Before, we just weren't aware of problems your team faced. At least, I wasn't.

wow. so many responses. This brought a tear to my eye. I love our team. so much

also, if i wasn't standing back there, this photo wouldn't have been possible, just saying

I can only hope that the rookies on this years team can experience something as awesome as this, this year, and for the MANY years to come.

now, like jane, i need to take a walk....

I hope all students involved with first feels as accomplished as we did in that moment, caught there, by the star ledger.

What time is it?
