Bryson robotics loses chance at state championship

The Bryson robotics team of Rean Kyzer, Trey Budarf, Nic Hunter, Bryce Foster and advisor JR Stearns believed they had a good shot at taking home a state title on April 25 after recently winning their regional competition.

That shot will never come for the team after the COVID-19 outbreak caused the cancellation of the event.

Stearns said he and the team believed they had the best robot in the teams’ history after they had placed sixth in the state competition the year before.

“We had really high hopes,” Stearns said. “We were reprogramming it, we had some issues at regionals where our robot kept hitting the wall and we didn’t get as many points as we should have due to that. But, we fixed all that and we spent days reprogramming the robot to where it would not hit anymore walls ever.”
