Blazer Battalion Dominates League Competition

The Blazer Battalion performed in outstanding fashion last weekend in the Greater Midlands Area Drill/Rifle Team League held at Lower Richland H.S. The Blazer Drill Team earned 3 individual medals in the knock out drill, an event where cadets are grouped en mass and given a series of drill commands while being graded by drill sergeants from Ft. Jackson. Any mistake, no matter how slight, results in your removal from the formation. The object is to be 1 of the last 4 cadets remaining out of group of over 150. Cadets Jorden Jackson, Kiara Letman, & Kira Thomas were 3 of the last 4 standing. Meanwhile, the Blazer Rangers Rifle Team consisting of Cadets Jared Banks, Jillian LeRoux, Jacob Newman & Christopher Tinneny won the 2016 Division II Rifle Championship. The team won every 1st place trophy in their division as well as one of the 2nd place trophies on their way to also earning 7 individual medals. The team shot an overall score of 1959 points, 46 points better than their previous best performance. Cadet Jared Banks shot an impressive 191 out of a possible 200 points in the prone position while Cadet Jillian LeRoux was only 2 points behind Jared. Both teams will be back in action at Blythewood H.S. for the League Championship tomorrow. Come on out and support your Blazers!
