FYFFE, AL (WAFF) -

Two schools in Sand Mountain will compete in a southern robotics competition in Auburn next month.

Students from Marshall County Technical School in Guntersville and Fyffe High School will make the trip.

The group's robotics projects were named first and second best at Northeast Alabama Community College last month. More than thirty students participated in the Fyffe project, and they're feeling pretty good about their chances.

"Last year was our first year and our robot really wasn't the best, but I think this year our robot, with everything that we did with it, it has a really good chance of competing with everybody else," said Ethan Jones, Fyffe High School student.

This competition is set for Dec. 7 and Dec. 8 at Auburn University.
