Team 987 wins
Las Vegas

Team 987, the HighRollers, competed this weekend in the FIRST Las Vegas Regional at the Thomas and Mack Center. The HighRollers ranked second after qualifying matches and were selected by the number one seed  team, HighTide, Team 4414 (the 2023 World Champions from Ventura, California) to join the #1 Alliance. The three-team alliance was created with the addition of Team 4501, The Humans, whose robot unfortunately suffered electrical problems, so The High Scalers , Team 3009 from Boulder City, Nevada  stepped in to help our alliance sweep the semi-final and final matches to win the Las Vegas Regional and secure our bid to the FIRST World Championship in Houston, April 17th to April 20th. The HighRollers wish to thank Team HighTide for selecting us to compete in the final matches and win this Regional, and to say Thank You to our amazing Sponsors and to the FIRST organization whose generous donations make it possible to have this opportunity to learn, build, and compete with peer robotics teams from around the world.  


Who we are, What  we do, and Why we do it!

Who we are

We are Team 987 - The High Rollers from Cimarron-Memorial High School located in Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada. 

Our Team started building robots in 2002 and we have been building them ever since. Our team motto is: "It's Not Enough!" and that says it all. School days, weekends, after-hours, or summer break, we never stop building, improving, or challenging ourselves in preparation for the next competitive season.  When we fail, we do MORE. When we succeed, we do MORE. Why? That's simple:

                       "It's Not Enough!" 

What we do

We build world-class robots to compete with and against more than 80,000 high school students from 3,225 teams from around the world in the FIRST® Robotics Competition!


These exciting, challenging, and STEM-centric events are made possible by the FIRST® organization ("For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and  Technology"), created by the inventor, entrepreneur, author, and speaker, Mr. Dean Kaman, with inspiration and assistance from MIT Professor Emeritus,      Dr. Woodie Flowers, PhD. (Wikipedia, 2002)

Why we do it

We do it because it's FUN, challenging, and extremely cool to build world-class, fully functional robots capable of competing against other robots and teams from countries all over the world. We collaborate with team members from other counties and share our ideas about engineering, mathematics, design, and fabrication in a supportive and mentored environment called the FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC).
