Girl’s Generation Recap: Reign Champions

  • Huge congratulations to the members of 5588 who attended Girl’s Generation and helped Reign win the entire competition! This past weekend, we sent some members who were able to attend down to Covington to the 2017 Washington Girl’s Generation competition where Reign became champions for the first time ever. In a close race during finals, 5588 and alliance captain and partner 3218 and 360 were able to defeat the 1st alliance of 3238, 1983 and 4469. After winning the first match and losing the second, Reign and their alliance partners won Girl’s Generation when Skunkworks 1983 failed to climb. For the first time in history, an all-girls team won Washington’s all-girl competition. What a great way to end the 2017 FRC season. The last and final match with Victoria will be one for the books. Way to leave your mark ladies!
