The team excelled this season amidst more than 3,200 FIRST Robotics teams and 70,000 participating students across 27 countries.

Strike Zone also has taken home numerous awards, including the Industrial Design Award sponsored by General Motors and the Autonomous Award sponsored by Ford Motor Company. FIRST is a non-profit, international organization founded in 1989 to inspire and educate young people in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math through mentor-based teaching. It consists of multiple robotics programs involving various age groups.
