West High Robotics Team Excels at Regional Competition

The West High Robotics team spent most of Spring Recess getting ready for and competing in the Utah FIRST Robotics Competition Regional. A four-day event, the Utah Regional takes place annually at the Maverick Center. Although the competition is in Utah, about half of the teams come from out of state, including a team from China and two teams from Mexico.  

West High was one of a handful of Utah public high school teams that competed. We were selected by the 3rd seed alliance to participate in the playoffs due to our defensive prowess. Our alliance ultimately was defeated by the 2 seed in the semifinals after a close match. Special thanks to the following folks who won awards.
