Fossil Ridge High School’s Ridgebotics team took 25th place out of 68 teams in their division in the World Competition held in Houston, Texas during the week of April 24. In addition, the team received the Pit Safety Award in their eighth consecutive tournament.

Despite the team’s positive attitude, they faced many struggles heading into the match, causing them to miss playoffs. “We had to completely rebuild the bot in a day after getting CRUSHed by team CRUSH at Denver, who actually won the championship. After the rebuild our inability to get our climbing mechanism working for the early matches caused us to not seed quite high enough,” reflected Richard Thompson.

“The best part [of the tournament] was definitely the conferences.

And despite not making it to playoffs we performed really well this year, poising us for another run next year.”
