Huntington County 4-H Robotics “Team THRUST” did not qualify to go to the world championship after their meet at the Indiana state championship last weekend in Kokomo, but team Lead Business Mentor Lori Elston says their showing wasn’t anything to be ashamed of.

“They didn’t make it on to the world championship, so that’s kind of a bummer,” Elston says. “But if you look at our numbers overall throughout the competition, we ended up ninth in the state, and there’s about 50 teams, so that’s not too bad.”
