On February 4th, JRHS NJROTC drill team traveled to Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek/Fort Story in Norfolk to compete in the Princess Anne Cavalier Drill Meet. Held at the same venue used for Area 5 Drill Championships, the team placed sixth against 10 other top tier teams, including three teams who placed in Nationals last year. Although our teams did not bring home any trophies, Armed Exhibition gained 16 points in the two-event tally, while Armed Standard matched their best score for the season! Hoorah, cadets! Job well done!
On Saturday, 10 December, 2016, the JRHS Drill Team traveled to King George High School in King George County, VA, to compete in the King George Drill Meet. Facing stiff competition from many other units (including a Marine Corps ROTC unit), our teams performed quite well. The UPI team secured a second place finish, our highest placing this season in that event, and Cadets May and Willett were two of ten finalists in a game of armed knockout (which, despite not being a scored event, managed to raise morale). This meet was a good way to end off the 2016 calendar year; however, there’s still a few more months left on the road to Area 5 Championships. Keep checking our website for more information on how our unit is doing.
