Our Drill team did a great job at the South Point HS Raider Invitational Drill Meet.
WE PLACED 3RD OVERALL!
1st Place in Unarmed Platoon // 3rd place 1st year Color guard
2nd place Armed Platoon // 3rd place Orienteering
We are so proud of our cadets!
NOTE: In order to build upon our success going forward, THE ENTIRE team needs to be at practice Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. We know that many cadets attend after school tutoring with their teachers. 1st Sgt. Barksdale has asked if the parents would support drill practice beginning and ending a little later (3:00 pm - 4:30 pm) to allow kids who are staying for after school tutoring time to have time to practice with the entire team. Please let 1st Sgt. Barksdale know if this schedule would work better.

The Ardrey Kell MCJROTC Rifle Team brought 2 teams to the Foothills Rifle Match at RS Central HS in Rutherfordton this past weekend. This was a fairly large tournament with some of the best teams from the NC and SC area participating including last years National Champions. There were 44 teams with a total of 186 athletes represented. The Ardrey Kell A Team placed 11th of 44 Teams in the tournament and the B Team placed 23rd of 44. Cadets with season high scores included veteran shooters Cadet Mitchell Roberts (69th of 186) and Cadet Will Cooper (72nd of 186), as well as first year shooter Cadet Damani Cornwell (98th of 186). Cadet Simon Krauthamer finished in 16th place overall. Congratulations to our cadets on a successful start to the season.
