Although we have reached the end of our journey to Worlds 2017 the voyages of the robot Enterprise will continue. It will be put to good use during Girls Gen and at outreach events in the offseason.

Cheney Recap

Everyone had a great time on the Cheney trip! The bus ride was full of jokes sleeping students and games. On this trip Benny the tribble was born, and he Everyone will be seeing him at all of our competiitions. A special thanks to all of the travel team for their hard work and dedication while at competition. While we did not place high enough to go to worlds at the PNW Championship we came very close. We were at 11th place once and finished 6 teams behind the cutoff by the end of the event. An award, match victory, aliance selection, or a victory at the Ellensburg event would have placed us in the top 36 and we would have gone to Worlds. But let us  not focus on what could have been and instead on look to the future.
