FIRST Robotics Competition in CT: NE Waterbury District Event

Week 2 events in New England are not immune to the winter weather! Despite a snow delay on Day 1, teams at our first Connecticut event of the season made it through 76 qualification matches and 15 playoff matches without a hitch.


Wilby High School in Waterbury, CT, was excited to host 38 teams from Connecticut and Massachusetts for the 2023 NE District Waterbury Event.




Special thanks to guest speakers: Waterbury Public Schools Superintendent Verna Ruffin and Waterbury Board of Aldermen President Paul Pernerewski Jr.


We saw incredibly competitive playoffs matches, with an upset of the number one alliance by the number 2 alliance!
