Organizers Trent Lindbloom and Bob Schroer were all smiles as hundreds of dusty, tired and happy competitors in the 2014 SAE Baja-Kansas gathered to eat fried chicken and receive awards at the Kansas Technology Center on Sunday.
“Overall, it was a great event.” Lindbloom said. “We have heard very positive things from SAE and the teams.”
From the beginning, Lindbloom said, the event was designed to test the students to the limit.
“Every day, every event, every obstacle that they had to overcome was part of the learning experience,” Lindbloom said. “Even on the last day, the students were learning.”
At the conclusion of the awards ceremony, Schroer told the competitors why he, Lindbloom, the sponsors and volunteers worked so hard to stage Baja-Kansas.
“We do it for you,” he told the teams.
The top three overall teams were:
Centro Universitario Da FEI
University of Michigan-Ann Arbor
Iowa State University
