Team 254A was originally the designation given to the first VEX team ever fielded by Team 254, which competed in the FVC competition as Team 567. The team competed under the 254A designation for the first time in the 2008-2009 Elevation season. During this time, it won the World Championship CREATE award. Under the leadership of John Mueller, 254A led the charge in creating...

Team History

After Team 254's success in the FTC Bridge Battle season, the team chose to expand its fledgling VEX program, adding on new subteams. The first of these was 254B, which first competed in the 2008-2009 VRC Elevation season. Since then, 254B has held a consistently solid record, winning the Pan Pacific championship in 2010 and reaching finals at the same tournament in 2011. Furthermore,...

Team 254C was the second team founded as part of Team 254's period of expansion in the 2008-2009 season. The team distinguished itself under the leadership of Derrick Dominic and Roshan Patel by winning numerous tournaments, including Pan Pacific. Following the graduation of its founding members, 254C changed hands multiple times, being led by Aaron Johnson in the 2010-11 season and Daniel Fernandes in...

Current Season 254D had a fairly successful 2013 VEX season. Their robot’s most significant characteristic was its simplicity. This proved to be both 254D’s biggest advantage and its biggest drawback. Unfortunately, the robot lacked any of the extra innovation that often wins tournaments. However, the uncomplicated but robust build of 254D’s robot showed its worth throughout the season. With very few mechanical problems and broken parts,...

Team History

254E was introduced in the 2008-2009 season as Team 254's rookie team, led by John Paton. Despite the fact that none of the members had prior VEX experience, the team did well at the Bellarmine tournament and went on to World Championships. The team did well again in the 2009-2010 season, Paton's final season on Team 254. Upon Paton's departure, Chris Correa and Jonathan...

Current Season Design Just like last season, team 254F used a simple design, which proved to be very helpful when at

tournaments. Taking last years design in mind, We used a 17.5in by 17.5in in a “U” styled drive

base with 4 393 motors geared for speed. We connected L channels to our arm for maximum

support and stability. Even though the drive base was close...

Team History

254G was added in the 2011-2012 season to deal with the increased number of team members. G quickly distinguished itself with its unique tactics, becoming the first Team 254 subteam to create a purely defensive robot, which was debuted at the Bellarmine tournament. G failed to qualify for worlds that year, but the following season, under the leadership of Taylor Njaka, G once again...
