Lancers robotics competed in the Rocky Mountain BEST (Boosting Engineering Science Technology) robotics competition on Saturday. The team battled their way in the head to head competition making it to the wild card round. They took first place in the wild card allowing them to advance to the semi-finals where they placed seventh.

The big win came when they were recognized as the 2nd place overall BEST award recipients. They received a trophy and invitation to the Regional Competition. Only 3 teams from each hub are invited to Regionals.

2021 Lancers Robotics is led by Seniors Joel Angel-Solis, Joe Ontiveros-Rodriguez, and Eduardo Ramirez-Macias. Sophomore Gabe Herrera jumped into a leadership role with the marketing and promotion.

Team members helping to bring home Saturday’s trophy: Isaac Vigil, Cesar Samaniego-Martinez, Carlos Salas Grohmann, Jacob Lopez, Diego Cisneros, Erick Caraveo. 

Other team members not present Saturday but worked to build and market: Jared Anaya, Kevin Arzaga-Lobo, Juliana Castillo, Juan Castillo-Soriano, Trung Huynh, and Alan Navarro.
