The Texas Tech Matadors were in the Winter Classic last year, but the team this year is entirely new. This junior/senior mixed team came to play. They’re currently sitting pretty in third with only two more scoring events (AWS and the interview) to go. Their best event so far has been LINPACK, where they finished a very close second to their campus rival, the hated Red Raiders.
None of the students knew much, if anything, about HPC before the competition and, likewise, didn’t consider it a career option. Like many students today, they might know that HPC exists, but don’t believe that they would be qualified to work in the industry. Let’s change that perception, ok?
