HugoTroop is a former competitor from the state of Kansas. They previously competed for Leawood Middle School and captained for two seasons at Blue Valley North High School. They now attend the University of Washington as an undergraduate majoring in Geoscience.

In general, HugoTroop has an affinity for earth science and physics events, especially Dynamic Planet/Glaciers. In Division B, they were also somewhat of a builder, participating in events such as Elastic Launched Glider and Bridge Building. Meanwhile, HugoTroop has never been too keen on biology events and is currently sick and tired of chemistry as a whole.

HugoTroop joined in early 2018 but was not active anywhere until 2019 when they began editing the Wiki. In autumn of 2019, they first joined the IRC, and in spring of 2020, were added as a Wiki Moderator. Since then, they also hosted Scioly Assassination 151.

1: Ranking is unknown as the 4th through 6th place medals were identified by ribbon color and were not labeled.
2: Ranks in parenthesis represent the raw ranking, as opposed to the listed ranking outside of the parenthesis. In local invitationals, multiple entries are typically allowed per team per event. Only the highest-scoring entry per team is considered in the listed rank, while all competitors are considered for the raw rank. As such, competitors have a chance to be outranked by their teammates and not receive a listed rank. At the state competition, Kansas splits small and large schools into separate divisions for medals. The divisions are ignored when calculating the raw team scores.
3: Rank requirements for medals were different from the usual top 6 at the following tournaments: BEARSO (top 20), SOLVI (top 5), UChicago (top 10), SOAPS (top 8), BirdSO (top 12), Regionals (top 3), and State (top 3).
