Underdogs at Apogee

In a world where some teams were fully-funded, these Bulldogs were the underdogs–  a rocketry team that propelled themselves 1,500 miles from the northern lights to desert nights. They exploded on the scene with a rocket that was built from scratch on a budget that had been slashed. “Challenge accepted,” they assured. 

Relying on creativity and resourcefulness, they showed up as they were and forged connections that endure.
