Team 5279 started their rookie year with FIRST Robotics in 2014. Our first year, we competed at the Virginia Regional and finished in 54th place. In 2015, our team had more sponsors and mentors that assisted during the build season. When our team competed at the 2015 Virginia Regional in Richmond, VA, we finished in 17th place. Team 5279 was also awarded with the Judges’ Award for most improved team! During the off-season of 2015 our team participated in community service projects as part of our community outreach. We’re almost done with the 2016 build season and we are looking forward to competing in two district events!
