The 2nd overall placed team from last year’s competition has released their final roster for FLIP 2020. This year’s team includes a lot of new faces as a large core of the team from last year graduated last spring. To find new team members a recruitment process took place. Sec 3’s and 4’s attended a presentation done by a team of veterans in each category of the competition. Samir (Robot), Gabriella (Kiosk), Nicholas (Video) and Jacob (Website) all gave presentations that wowed the students in attendance. The meeting was considered a success by our team head Barry Dobbs as 25 new faces joined the team for the season.

Although the losses from last season may team will be felt, I’m confident that the newcomers will make their presence felt in the team. Although losing a large chunk of a team’s core would prove to be detrimental to their odds of winning, Centennial is still considered a contender to take home the championship this season. With half the team made up of rookies it may be difficult to achieve their title hopes, the team is still very determined to go all the way this season. This fresh crop of rookies could be what takes Centennial over the top into championship territory.
