We are a 4th year team with fifteen highly motivated students ranging from seventh through eleventh grades.

The 2016-2017 game is Velocity Vortex. Watch game animation.

At the start of this season, we set what seemed to be an aggressive goal for a team which had never gotten beyond qualifying tournaments: get to the PA Championship. Well, frankly, we blew the doors off this goal. We won the PA Championship and did well enough at the Eastern Super-Regional to qualify for FTC World Championships. St. Louis, here we come!
