McKinley JROTC Takes First Place in Drill Competition

South Park HS hosted the annual Great Lakes JROTC Drill Competition on Saturday December 1st, including South Park, McKinley and Hutch Tech, as well as JROTC battalions from Dunkirk NY and Carthage (Watertown NY).  


 The all-day event was supported by the Senior ROTC Cadets from Canisius College who served as unbiased graders for the event.  Our Cadets competed in all 5 events, both the Armed and Unarmed Squad and Platoon and Color Guard sequences  Each participating school showed well in the competition bringing their "A" game to the drill floor.

Kudos to our cadets for all their hard work and dedication in preparing for the competition.  Hats off to MSG Dugan and all the cadets that put in a tremendous amount of work leading up to this competition and earned the recognition they deserved.
