Foley High School’s 2017 FFA vet team won 1st place at state competition.
In most FFA competitions, if you win first place in your state, your team gets to compete with other teams from different states around the United States.
The vet team this year for Foley High School was Sydney Moore, Allie Quinley, Juan Otero, and Ryan Groves (that’s me). The competition was really intense and although we didn’t win, we tried our best. After all, it’s like Dr. Taylor said, “The worst anyone can call you is state champs.”
During that week was also the time of the FFA National Convention, which we were also able to attend. It was very fun and we got to meet people from all over. People that have previously been have said it was like a sea of blue jackets, and they were right.
We had a great trip to Indiana, and even if we didn’t win nationals, we came home state champs.
