The robotics team from West Ranch High School journeyed to Long Beach March 13 and 14 to compete in the Los Angeles Regional FIRST Robotics Competition.

Following a "lunacy" theme, 61 high school teams from Southern California, Arizona, Brazil and Chile challenged each other on a "lunar crater" roughly the size of a tennis court, scoring points by launching balls called "moon rocks," "empty cells" and "super cells" into the containers of the opposing teams' robots.

The West Ranch team placed 13th among 62 schools and made it to the first round of the elimination playoffs.
