2017 was our Rookie Year and we competed in the Sacramento Regional and Silicon Valley Regional. In our debut in Sacramento, we finished in 10th place in a field of 56 teams, earning the Highest Rookie Seed award. We made it to the quarterfinals, where we were the captains of their seventh-seed alliance. In the more competitive Silicon Valley Competition, we ranked 14th out of 60 teams and earned the Safety FIRST award on Day 1.
Our faculty advisor is Bobby McLaughlin and our mentor is Brandon Naylor.
