The Beginning

The LRHSD schools began fiercely united as Team 1647, the Iron Devils. Then in 2009, a Storm was stirred and this Lenape/Cherokee coalition began, accommodating even more in-district students passionate about robotics. In 2022, a Storm swelled again and two new teams emerged: Cherokee Charge 2722 and Lenape Red Watch 2720. 

This rookie-year robot was named Stormy, complete with a floor intake, turret, and hooded shooter. It all began in a Cherokee woodshop, 80 students, 5 teachers, and 3 Lockheed Martin volunteers. The "Gear of Death" turret is still on display around the wall clock in Jim Hessler's old classroom, Room A203, at Lenape High School.

About The Team

FRC team 2729 was founded in 2008 by Nathan Knauss and James Hessler, teachers at Cherokee and Lenape High Schools. They separated from Iron Devils team 1647, which is currently made up of students from Shawnee and Seneca High Schools. In 2010, Storm created the Typhoons, FTC Team 4390. In 2013, another FTC team, Team 7433: The Cyclones, was founded. Additionally, in 2017, our third FTC team, The Whirlwinds, Team 13290, was founded. In 2018, at the World Championship in Detroit, Team 2729 won the Gracious Professionalism award.
