Foothill qualified 3 teams to compete against the top 10% robotics teams around the World – 600 high school teams for over 40 different countries. The competition took place in Louisville, Kentucky this past week and our Knights Were AWESOME!!

  • Team D (we did not have a Team C) was an all-Freshman Team that qualified for Worlds and grew over the week in their skills to prepare for next year!
  • Team B lost a VERY CONTROVERSIAL Division Finals Match that would have placed them in the Top 6 in the World, if not possibly won it all!!
  • Team A ended up as the #1 Team in the US, and #2 in the WORLD!!

Great job Coach Jeff Farr and our 15 Super Stars!!
