Our Cadets traveled to  Amarillo, TX last week to compete in the Caprock High School Golden Spread Sweepstakes. The Air Rifle match was Friday afternoon where our two teams placed 1st and 2nd, and then they competed in the Drill Meet, Academic and PT competitions on Saturday where we finished 2nd overall as the Sweepstakes Runner-up. They are bringing home a lot of team and individual medals.

In execution and after every drill command the cadets are inspected for perfection. Jauquese Hargrove finished 2nd out of all the cadets in this competition.
