Bryan County High School’s Army JROTC Program is beginning to get accustomed to victories.
The unit’s accomplishments at last week’s drill meet only proved this to be true. Retired Maj. Charlie Mercer and Ret. SFC Stevie Stringer accompanied 20 cadets to Armstrong Atlantic State University, where the team joined eight other Area 1 schools in a Drill and Ceremonies Competition. The Bryan County High School Drill Team, commanded by Cadet 2nd Lt. Tori Brewer and cadet Maj. Justin Williams, competed in six team events, placing first or second in four of them.
Taking home a first place win was the Battalion’s Regulation Male Unarmed Squad, commanded by Williams. The Redskin Battalion Commander, cadet Lt. Col. Melissa Campbell, commanded a Female Regulation Unarmed Squad, who took home second.
This Saturday was also a day of firsts for the Redskin’s Drill Team. For the first time ever, Bryan County competed in Regulation Armed Squad and Armed Dual Exhibition. The Armed Squad, commanded by cadet 2nd Lt. Josie Süss, took home a second place and freshmen cadet Staff Sgt. Stephen Süss and cadet Sgt. Brandon Miller of the Dual Exhibition team took home second as well.
The Redskin Drill Team also competed in Regulation Unarmed Platoon commanded by cadet 1st Sgt. Logan Scott and Color Guard commanded by cadet Staff Sgt. Brett Kohler. Cadet 1st Sgt. Lindsay Bowen placed 3rd in Individual Unarmed Knockout.
The team will face Area 9 schools March 1 at Vidalia. And look for the competition to get tougher as the Region Meet comes closer.
