LONGVIEW/GREGG COUNTY (KYTX) - Longview High School technology and engineering students this summer earned 11 top ten national Technology Students Association awards, including three national championships.
One of the first place finishes, the technology bowl team completed a hat trick for recently-graduated seniors Andrew O'Connor, Judson Daniels and Chris Yu. They entered the 2013 competition in Orlando, FL as the two-time defending national champions.
"After finalists were called, they announced the top three, and the six of us grew more nervous as third and second were announced," freshman Alyson Roper said. "When they announced us as first we couldn't believe it."
