The local Naval Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (NJROTC) earned high rankings in several categories during the New Mexico Military Institute Invitational held Saturday in Roswell.

Fourteen students from Los Alamos competed in the event against students from 25 other schools.

The local team earned first place in overall female color guard, second place in female color guard inspection, second place in armed regulation drill and third place in armed inspection.

The other categories the NJRTOC competed in were male color guard and a four-person female fitness team.

Special recognition goes to junior Paige Ramsey and freshman Sarah Larson. Ramsey brought home a first place overall trophy as the female color guard commander and Larson brought home second and third place overall medals in the flexed arm hang and half-mile run, respectively.

The local NJROTC is pleased with the results.

“Considering there were 25 other schools, we did really well,” Lt.Cmdr. Wes Shumaker said. “This was really a very outstanding performance.”
