Marjory Stoneman Douglas JROTC {Eagles Battalion}

By: Matt Rothman

The Marjory Stoneman Douglas Junior Reserve Officer Officers Training Corps competed in their first competition on Saturday and finished second overall. 

Held at MSD, there were five events, starting with a 5k team run where students were timed until the last member crossed the line.

The second event was litter carry, where members took turns carrying the litter for one mile. Teams then had to form a bridge until the last person on the team crossed.

The fourth event was the tire flip, which was capped off by an obstacle course.

The Raiders had their male, female, and JV teams all place in second, while the mixed team finished third. Next, MSD will compete again on October 21.
