The Naval Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps, has had a successful year, earning top place finishes in drill meets and competitions and on Dec. 11, the cadets were recognized for their efforts during the fall awards ceremony.
“We have an outstanding group of cadets this year,” Lt. Cmdr. Wes Shumaker said. He added this year’s group of cadets experienced more success at drills and competition then they had in the past.
What is the reason for their success? “I think they have more dedication to the unit,” Shumaker said.
The success continued during the Farmington Military Skills Invitational Drill Meet, which was held Jan. 31 at Farmington High School. The cadets earned first place finishes in team events including male color guard and mixed color guard. They also earned a third place finish in precision shooting.
In individual events, Zachary Breshears took first place in the half-mile run and Kyle Beery took third place in the precision shooting standing position and overall aggregate score.
Overall, 37 students helped win a second place overall in the principals sweepstakes trophy competition. Twenty-three other schools competed in the event.
