Last weekend our robotics team competed at the Utah FRC Regional at the Maverick Center for four days. We ended up near the bottom of the rankings after the qualifying rounds, ending in 48th place. Competition was tough this year, with more than half the teams traveling from out of state to compete. The winners of the tournament were led by a team from Davis, California that won the world championship last year. About 6 Utah teams competed in the playoffs (out of 24 teams), and only two moved on to the next level. Our next step is to compete at the Idaho Regional starting March 28. Several of our robotics teams did outreach on the Legislature on March 2, showing members of the Utah legislature how we robot and what FIRST is all about.

Science Olympiad

On February 26 West had 3 teams and 40 students travel to the Snow College Regional Science Olympiad. Teams of 15 compete in 25 different events in all areas of science and engineering. In a tight race, the West High School division team ended up in first place! They squeaked by rival Maple Mountain for the first time. The next stop is a shot at the state championship March 31 at the University of Utah. Dedication is strong since that is during spring break.
