The competition season has come to an end for Warren County High School’s Pioneer Battalion JROTC Raider Team. Its last competition, the JROTC Raider Nationals, was last weekend.“The team competed admirably and although they did not place in the top five teams in the nation, they did have success through the year,” said 1st Sgt. Timothy Howard.National competition was held at the Gerald Lawhorn Boy Scout Camp in Molena, Ga. The team started the season June 25 with workouts — push-ups, sit-ups, running, obstacle courses and rucksack carries — preparing for the events to come. As school began, the regular season did as well.Over the season, the team also competed in the Scenic City Raider Challenge held in Tunnel Hill, Ga., the Boxwell Commando Raider Challenge in Lebanon, and the York Institute Raider Challenge in Jamestown, winning a third-place trophy and two fourth-place honors.“As they performed through the year, they seemed to get better, stronger and faster each time,” said Howard.
