Will Ragnarok — a motorized, whirring, ball-shooting machine that scoots across a floor like a Tasmanian devil — take down the competition in Sacramento and Boise?

A name derived from Norse mythology, the Vanden High School robotics team’s creation certainly looked formidable, that’s for sure, in a practice round earlier this week in a nondescript portable building on the Markeley Lane campus in Fairfield.

Led by president Connor Thrasher, a senior with a 4.74 weighted GPA, the team was within hours Tuesday night of completing its “build season” and required to literally shrink wrap their competition ’bot before facing off against dozens of other teams at the Sacramento and Boise competitions.
