Who is Team 191
Team 191, the X-Cats, is a robotics team started in 1992, by drawing upon the brightest minds from Joseph C. Wilson Magnet High School. The X-Cats have produced a steady stream of high quality robots and successful young adults since the beginning. We are one of the few remaining founding teams left.

Congratulations to our 2023 graduating senior!


DaRon is enjoying his first year on the X-Cats team. He is on the Web team and has found a way to juggle robotics, football, baseball, and art. He plans on majoring in Art and Marketing. He has already been accepted into several colleges, in and out of state, and is in the process of finalizing his decision.


In CHARGED UP presented by Haas, FIRSTĀ® Robotics Competition teams
are inspired to see the potential of energy storage in a new light as they compete
to charge up their communities. Watch the game animation to spark game-play ideas.

The X-Cats are charged up about this year's game!!!

X-Cats Mission:

The Xerox Wilson FIRST Partnership is in support of the FIRST mission to inspire today's youth without regard to race, sex or national origin; and to create a demand among them to excel in science and technology. We are a "back to basics" team. The inspiration of the student participants on our team is our number one priority. We are building interested, intelligent members of society who get involved and participate. We are building people as much as robots. We will actively recruit students who need and want support in planning for their futures. We will strive to have the team of adults and students reflect the ethnic and gender diversity within Xerox and the Rochester City School District

FIRST Vision:

Our mission is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.
~ Dean Kamen, Founder
