Northmont places 3rd in Floyd Central Drill Meet
Saturday, November 14, the Northmont High School Navy Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (NJROTC) placed third at the first ever Floyd Central Drill Meet held at Floyd Central High School in Floyds Knob, Indiana. Twelve schools from Illinois, Indiana and Ohio competed in the event.
The Thunderbolts won trophies for the following team events: academics, second place; athletics, first place; unarmed IDR, second place; unarmed exhibition, third place; armed exhibition, second place; and color guard, first place.
The highlight of the drill meet is the knockout events. Approximately 225 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. Northmont cadets, Alison Cornett , Jacob Marshall and Gwen Landes placed first, fourth, and fifth, respectively, in armed knockout while cadet Caylin Hefferon placed first in unarmed knockout.
