The third-seeded alliance (Smith-Cotton, Rockhurst and Park Hill South High Schools) went 5-0 in the playoffs, winning the event!

As a member of the winning alliance, EMP earned its second invitation to compete at the FIRST Championships in Houston from April 17 to 20. Out of the 3,600 teams worldwide, EMP will be one of 600 teams competing at the international competition.
