Green Run 2018

This weekend our own JRHS NJROTC went out to compete in one of the last competitions of the season. At Green Run high school, in northern Virginia, the exhibition drill teams, PT team, and academic team all brought their “A” game.

The Exhibition drill teams did very well bringing in a third place in armed exhibition, and second in unarmed exhibition. Our academic team scored first overall against several teams who had previously been in national competitions! Top individual scores were Cadet Thomas Shashaty and Cadet Clark Brandau, tied for third with the top scorer Cadet Quinn Lily. The PT team scored third place in push-ups and second place in sit-ups. In the 100m relay we did not place, but the performance overall was stellar. The 200m race was cancelled due to dangerous track conditions.

Congratulations to all the teams on an outstanding performance, keep up the good work and hope for Area 5 competition coming up! Bravo Zulu!
