On September 30th, 2017, Kennesaw Mountain High School’s NJROTC drill team was off to Stockbridge High School to kick sum’ butt! It was a bright clear sunny day and perfect for the competition. We had been practicing for months and were ready to fight. At each drill meet, we have an academic test, personal inspection, physical fitness and drill. We competed against 16 different schools! First was the academic test. Our academic team worked super hard these last few months and it worked out in our favor because we got 1st place in academics! Our next event was physical fitness, even though we aren’t the best at PT we did our best with what we had. Personal Inspection was a success! We got 3rd place and Our NS-1s did amazingly well for there first personal inspection and made us proud. Our drill teams are what make our unit so great, just because of drill and color guard it puts us ahead of the game. We got 3rd place in color guard also. After drill we had sprints, just like push up and sit-ups we aren’t the best but we tried our best. This was an amazing drill meet, we got 2nd place overall and qualified for regionals! Now it’s time to push our self’s even harder! Go Mustangs!
