Saturday, February 25, the AFJROTC cadets of Kempner High School won the Overall Points Championship at the Cleveland (previously Ellington Field) Drill Meet for the Fourth Consecutive year. This is the premier Drill Competition for Air Force JROTC programs in the Houston Metropolitan area.
Besides the Championship trophy Kempner won 5 event trophies. The Armed Drill Team won their Exhibition Drill with a scintillating performance including multiple rifle tosses. The Academic Team also won First Place with Matthew Lively garnering the highest test score. The First Place Tug-of-War team was undefeated with 4 straight winning pulls. The Physical Training Team placed second while scoring some awesome numbers in push-ups and sit-ups.
