Saturday, November 15, the Northmont Senior High School Navy Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (NJROTC) placed second at the Central Crossing Drill Meet held at Central Crossing High School in Grove City, Ohio.
The Thunderbolts won trophies for the following team events: academics, second place; air rifle, third place; athletics, third place; armed platoon IDR, second place; unarmed platoon IDR, first place; and color guard, second place.
The highlight of the drill meet is the knockout events. Approximately 250 cadets flooded the drill deck, lining up in a large military formation, and executing stationary drill for individual precision, with more than ten judges swarming through the formation “knocking them out” for failure to execute the movement precisely, until the last man or woman is standing. When the smoke cleared, Northmont cadet John Garrison placed third in armed knockout while cadets Maddie McFadden and Jenna Grieshop placed second and eighth, respectively, in unarmed knockout.
Fourteen schools competed in the drill meet. In addition to Northmont, the schools were Belmont High School (Dayton, OH), Central Crossing High School (Grove City, OH), Floyd Central High School (Floyds Knobs, IN), Franklin Heights High School (Columbus, OH), Garfield High School (Akron, OH), Greenville High School (Greenville, OH), Grove City High School (Grove City, OH), Hamilton High School (Hamilton, OH), Highland High School (Marengo, OH), New Albany High School (New Albany, IN), Parkersburg High School (Parkersburg, WV), Pike High School (Indianapolis, IN), and James Ford Rhodes High School (Cleveland, OH). Floyd Central High School placed first overall.
The Northmont NJROTC cadets will next compete on January 31 at the Chicagoland Drill Meet in Arlington Heights, IL.
