Students from Live Oaks Career Campus and Milford High School placed fourth at recent JROTC competition.
Twenty schools competed in male, female, and mixed divisions in Molena, GA on Feb. 26 for the All-Service Raider Nationals. All- service teams consisted of 10 cadets from Army, Air Force, Navy, or Marine Corps JROTC. The only branch not represented this year was the Navy due to COVID-19. Almost 40 teams competed with 500 cadets and instructors.
For individual events Live Oaks received a second-place trophy for ‘the Gauntlet,’ they received a fourth-place trophy for Physical Team Test and a fifth-place trophy for the 5K run. Their mixed team consisted of 11 cadets from Milford and three from Live Oaks.
This was Live Oaks first attempt at a national level raider competition. They have been the Ohio Valley Cadet Conference champions for the past three years and the Ohio Regional champions for the past two years.
