    Students are expected to come in at least once a week to practice on several events.   Towards the end of October, there may be a test given to choose who will be doing what event.  We will decide on the 2 teams at that time. 

    We are able to have 2 teams compete with 15 people per team. In the event that we win at regionals, only 1 team may go to State Competition.  

    That means that the team with the highest points will represent us at State if we go. 

    Regional Competition: Northlake Community College in March. If we advance, we will go to the State Competition. 

    State Competition: Texas A&M University in April.  Parents MUST accompany students to this competition.
