RCHS Robotics team at San Antonio earlier this year.
Roscoe High School’s Robotics Team is sending 11 students to Texas UIL’s first-ever FIRST state robotics championship this weekend at the Austin Convention Center to compete against 31 other Texas schools of all classes, almost all of them larger.

The Abilene Reporter-News was in town last week to describe Roscoe’s preparations for the upcoming event and to interview Roscoe’s players and coaches for a front-page article written by Timothy Chipp. It ran in the Reporter-News on Sunday. You can access the article and a video clip, also by Chipp, by clicking here.

The Plowbots will be competing in a game called Stronghold, which involves negotiating an obstacle course with two other allies to attack a castle. They play several rounds with different allies, and the teams with the most points at the end of the game are the winners.


Mon., Aug. 1 – Plowboy football two-a-days begin, 6:30am

Mon., August 8 – Classes begin

Thu., Aug. 11 – Plowboy Preview, 6pm

Fri., Aug. 12 – First Plowboy scrimmage at Munday, 6pm

Thu., Aug. 18 – College classes begin

Fri., Aug. 18 – Plowboy scrimmage vs. Hawley @ Roscoe, 6pm



Summer sky.
There’s nothing unusual to report about this week’s weather since it has been just about as typical for this time of year as it could possibly be—with the possible exception of the higher humidity, around 50%. Skies have been clear to partly cloudy with breezes from the south or southeast, afternoon highs have been in the mid to upper nineties, and early morning lows have been in the mid-seventies. The highs for the week were 99°F on Sunday and Monday, and the low was 73° yesterday morning.

The outlook for the coming week is for more of the same. There is a 20% chance of thundershowers through Friday with a 0% chance thereafter. The weather will also be a little cooler through Friday. Today and tomorrow are projected to have highs of only 93° with Friday’s rising to 95°, but then on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday they should be back in the upper nineties. Humidity will continue somewhat higher than normal at around 50%.

A break in the heat with some precipitation would be nice, but it doesn’t appear very likely.
