A group of Valley high school students will return home Wednesday after a successful run in the Greenpower Car Race.

The Huntsville team competed this weekend in West Sussex in the United Kingdom. The team is comprised of students from Huntsville ISD's Center for Technology. They designed and built an electric vehicle to compete in the race.

They placed seventh and thirteenth respectively in a pair of races. This is the first team from the United States to compete, and officials say it was the best showing ever for a first-time competitor.
