  1. Zach Newbill said it best when he stated “this was a great experience being able to compete against the big universities and being able to see how you compare with students all across the country”. In the overall trophy count, Amarillo College rated top 3 best schools at the conference! We were ranked with Missouri Western State University and Purdue University. Our students Rock!
