By Jackie Nelson

The Hesston High robotics team has not only brought home hardware this season, but now is the reigning Kansas State Robotics Champions.

On Saturday afternoon, the Robotics team traveled to Hutchinson to participate in the ESSDACK State Tournament of Champions.

“Hesston won the overall team championship for their first ever Kansas State Championship. Aaron Fuqua won the Best Design Award, and the team of Dave Merchant, Andrew Abbott and Aaron Fuqua earned a second place finish and the Tournament Finalist Award,” said Robotics instructor Trevor Foreman.

Senior Breanne Luzier, a veteran robotics student, said the program, and the students, have earned their state champion status.

“This really proves we can accomplish a lot,” she said.

Only in its second year, the Robotics program has consistently been bringing home hardware from competitions.
