“I feel like my whole life I’ve been preparing just for this trip and this race,” junior Robert Barton said. “It’s going to be such a huge thing. It’ll be something I never forget.”

Noelle Zinn, whose also a junior, is also excited to participate in the bigger tournaments.

“States is such a smaller group,” Zinn said. “When you go to nationals, the group gets so much larger. Being able to fight for a spot, whether you win or not and actually compete, is one of the coolest things ever.”

The team started a GoFundMe page to help raise money for the trips. The link can be found here.
