    I've copied the following information from the UROC website:

    This year the US Senior team won the Gold Medal in Class S2P - Precision Eggloft and Emma Kristal won the individual Gold Medal.

    The United States S1B altitude team won the Silver Medal Team members included Steve Kristal, Dr. Bob Kreutz and Matt Steele. Dr. Bob also won individual gold with a truly fantastic flight. The team bested 15 other teams and came up just a very tiny bit short of winning the gold.

    Matt was also awarded an individual gold medal for Scale Altitude. (A scale model of a rocket judged on accuracy of scale, then flown to the highest altitude.) This means Matt will be bringing home an individual gold medal, a Team gold medal and a Team silver medal. (He competed in 3 events and he is bringing home a medal from all 3 events.)
    Congratulations Matt and all of Team USA for a fantastic showing!
