Team member Caleb Hickman-Thomas says the championship run has helped him and his teammates learn new skills. “You learn a lot of skills from it, especially the teamwork part. You’ve gotta work, you’ve got to be able to communicate to people what they’re doing right and wrong. It’s all in between.”
The five team members were able to compete against other teams during their season remotely from one location.
