Tristen joined the Robotics Team last school year. We had not been to one of the competitions until state. With Diana Batson getting sick we told Wade we would help out with the team. State was in Flagstaff and they competed against 31 teams from AZ, NM, and Mexico. This is where I fell in Love with Robotics. They are part of the FIRST program and are part of the FTC(FIRST Tech Challange). I can't thank the Batsons enough for starting the Robotics program and allowing Brandon and I to be a part of it. Our team ended up taking 1st Place and moving on to Super-Regionals in Oakland, CA(post to come).
It was so fun to see Tristen in his element!
