*The last time A New England team won was back in 2010 with team 177 while the last time a New England Team made it to the finals on Einstein was back in 2013 with team 1519.

Good luck to team 125, 1058, 2084, 3719, and 5687 on Einstein field! Bring home that gold!

Of those, 2084 and 3719 have never been to champs, and 1058 and 5687 have never been on Einstein. Hats off to NE this year.

I’ve never been more proud of our district.

The data is there - districts breed great teams.

We were so happy for 3719, STEM Whalers. In all other sports, our schools are supposed to be “arch rivals,” and we have to be “against each other.” Now we are gonna have to explain to other students, teachers, and even our principal, that “No, it’s great they got that far!”

Outside of the FRC world, it wouldn’t make sense that we helped them out along the way either (lending them some laptops for their drive station), but to us it makes sense because:
“Hey, at least our computers made it to Einstein!”

Not only was I super proud to see 125 and 3719 on Einstein as NE teams, it was even better that both are lead by fellow alumni from team 11!

Very cool day.

Yup! FIRST teams live by the motto “If it can’t be us, we are so glad it was you!”. It can be very hard to explain to those not involved that we are truly happy for, proud of, and willing to do whatever we can to support each other. This is what I really love about the district model; it breeds a camaraderie among the teams built over the course of the season and from year-to-year.

So proud to be part of NE FIRST!!! :DSave

We were honored to play on Einstein with some local teams this year especially 125 & 5687 who we played with much earlier in the year. Crazy to think back to Week Zero & GSD finals and realize 125, 2084, 5687, and us would all see each other later in the season on the World Championship stage.

Equally excited for 3719 to have played their hearts out for the World title. You guys rocked!

Congratulations to all of our fellow NE teams who progressed far into the elimination rounds! Proud to see New England leaving our mark at an increasing rate each season!

I also wanted to shout out to the very deserving 2084, Robots by the C. Somehow, even though ranked 10 at the New England Champs, and they were 1 inside-pick from being alliance captains, somehow they were left out of eliminations. Sometimes things make no sense. We were right next to them in the Tesla pits, had great talks with the kids and mentors, never once heard them complain of the oversight.
Missed the dance in New Hampshire, but hey, Einstein!
