The RoboRaiders returned in 1998 to defend their Mid-Atlantic Champion title. However, without the luxury of a single corporate sponsor, the team had to pool community resources to maintain productivity. An empty warehouse was converted into RoboRaiders headquarters, complete with a computer lab, full arena and fabrication shop. With the help of three engineers from Ortho Clinical Diagnostics, a fully participating parent support group and various professionals from the community, the team of over thirty students put together a powerful machine. With limited funds, Team RoboRaiders stuck together and worked hard on cost effective solutions. They finished a respectable 14th in the Mid-Atlantic Regional and a 25th place finish at the National Competition in Epcot.
