Just a few notes after wrapping up 2017. Our JROTC Rifle team competed against Peoria Richwoods and earned the top 3 spots of 18 shooters. The team was paced by Hope Hill finishing 1st and Blake Briggs and Karista Tribbett 2nd and 3rd. Additionally, our JROTC Rifle Range was dedicated in honor of Lance Cpl. Jordan Bastean. A plaque now hangs in the JROTC hallway in his honor (see picture).
Also, our Drill Team finished first overall at the annual Lincoln's Quest Challenge against Peoria Richwoods HS, Manual Academy and Limestone HS. Additionally, they had a great showing in Waynesville MO just prior to the holidays.
As we enter into 2018, our Drill and Rifle teams will both be competing in January.and February.
Remember, for all Cadets our uniform days take place on Mondays. Students are required to wear them on those days.
