Game in Many Pics: ‘Texas Strong’ Game – Eastwood vs Plano at the Star in Frisco

The Eastwood Troopers loaded up the buses and headed East – to the Star in Frisco, Texas – where they had a long awaited appointment with the Plano Wildcats Thursday night.

Joining the Troopers on their journey were the normal contingent of fans, boosters, the band, cheer squad and the Trooperettes, with two more notable additions – they carried the resilient might of the City of El Paso with them, as well as spirit of their fallen former teammate Eddie Cruz.

With both the Trooper and Wildcat bands joining to play the Eastwood Fight Song and both teams intermingled during the National Anthem, it was clear this would be more than just a regular high school football game.

While Plano would be marked as the victor in this contest, dubbed the ‘Texas Strong’ Game, it was clear that unity won out over hate Thursday night.

Eastwood Robotics Team Earns Honors at World Competition

The Eastwood High School Robotics Team received the Design Award at the 11th annual VEX Worlds Competition in Louisville, KY last month.

The Design Award is presented to a team that demonstrates the ability to implement the most effective and efficient robot design process. Their Engineering Notebook and discussion with the judges demonstrated the team’s ability to produce a quality robot with minimal adult assistance.

This team’s Engineering Notebook is a clear, complete, and organized documentation of the robot design process that demonstrates effective management of skills, time, and material resources. Students on this team were able to explain how they developed an effective game strategy and robot design.

Team Members for the Troopers are: Diana Segura, Maria Adeliz Ordonez, Frances Rangel, Emily Ocon, Andromeda Delaney, Sara Graham, Amanda Coons, Ricardo Ramirez, Ethan Ramos, Giovanni Leon, Carlos Rodriguez, and Michael Solis.

This year’s VEX Worlds Robotics tournament was the largest robotics tournament, according to the Guinness World Records with over 30,000 people, including 1,648 teams from 30 nations participating.

The week-long celebration of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), diversity, and robotics kicked-off with the VEX Robotics Championships which crowned elementary, middle school, high school, and university champions from China, Canada, and the United States.

The Troopers are a 4x World Qualifier, 4x West Texas Excellence Award Champions and 2018 Excellence Award winner at the West Texas VEX Robotics Tournament qualifying them to the VEX Worlds Tournament.

In addition, Eastwood HS mentored elementary teams which also placed at the competition.

Trooper Triumvirate Awarded Gates Scholarships

Three Eastwood High School graduating seniors – Andrew Lowrance, Leonardo Moraveg, and Ryan Solis – have been named to the inaugural group of 300 U.S. student leaders receiving the first-ever Gates Scholarship, an-all-expense-paid college scholarship funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

“We are extremely proud of our Gates Scholars,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Xavier De La Torre. “Thanks to their unrelenting determination, perseverance, and hard work at Eastwood High School, they are now positioned to realize their dreams of a successful postsecondary education and rewarding professional career.”

Lowrance, Moraveg, and Solis all plan to use their Gates Scholarships to attend Ivy League Schools.

Lowrance plans to study physics and behavioral economics at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia; Moraveg will major in economics at Brown University; and Solis plans to major in government and economics at Harvard University.

More than 28,000 students applied for this year’s Gates Scholarship. With the launch of this new scholarship program, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation continues its longstanding commitment to help outstanding minority students who come from low-income backgrounds realize their maximum potential.

This prestigious scholarship program is based on evidence that by eliminating the financial barriers to college, an all-expenses-paid scholarship can enable high-potential, low-income minority students to excel in their course work, graduate college, and continue to be leaders throughout their lives.

All Gates Scholars will have the full cost of their undergraduate studies covered at any accredited college or university of their choosing. This includes tuition, fees, room, board, books, and transportation, and possibly other personal costs that the school or other scholarships don’t pay, over and above what the students’ parents can afford to pay.

The Gates Scholarship will fund 300 students per year for a decade, totaling 3,000 students over the life of the program.

Eligible students must be members of one or more of the following ethnic minorities: African American, American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian and Pacific Islander American, and Hispanic American, officials said. The ideal candidate demonstrates outstanding academic performance, leadership ability, and exceptional personal success skills.
