ONALASKA, Wis. -- - The gym at Onalaska Luther high school was alive with the sounds of cheering Sunday afternoon, but it wasn't for a sporting event.
The school hosted a robotics competition that brought out three other local high schools.
Teams spend time in class throughout the year learning about math and science and constructing their own robots.
They then compete in events like Sunday's scrimmage.
It's all done with an eye on the regional competition coming up this spring.
But Sunday was all about showcasing skills that don't attract as much attention as your typical high school sports.
"It's like a pay off for all your hard work. You're in the background with your computer and you're putting everything together and to actually display it and show your skills to the world makes you feel accomplished for once," said Luther High School Senior Kevin Walls.18589500
Central, Aquinas, Onalaska Luther, and La Crescent-Hokah high school all had teams competing on Sunday.
They'll all go on to compete at the regional level this spring.
