Warren County’s JROTC drill team competed with precision Saturday in the A&M Drill Meet in Harvest, Ala., winning several award categories of physical fitness and drill and ceremonies.
“Team Pioneer went to the Alabama A&M drill meet and worked extremely hard,” said Warren County JRTOC 1st Sgt. Timothy Howard.
According to their team’s posting, the JROTC drill team’s efforts earned them second place in a physical fitness test event to start the day. Drill team competition started with a first-place solo exhibition by David King, a first-place dual exhibition by Hunter Rowland and King, a second-place dual exhibition by Ethan Warner and Jesus Zuniga, and the squad ended the day with a second-place squad exhibition. Owen Mills earned a fourth-place ranking in the knockout drill.
Last month, an event where other teams competed in drill and ceremony was held at Warren County High School for its 30-year anniversary. The JROTC cadets provided support for the visiting schools, over a dozen in all, including stringent grading guidelines they followed when the cadets competed in the A&M meet.
