Mission High School JROTC Eagle Battalion competes

Mission High School JROTC Eagle Battalion competed in three JROTC Skills Competitions between January 18, 2014 and March 22, 2014. The competitions were held at Palmview High School, Grulla High School and PSJA Memorial High School with up to 24 schools from the Rio Grande Valley(RGV) participating.

Mission High School JROTC Eagle Battalion received 11 trophies during the three competitions. The Cadets worked very hard on their drills and routines to achieve their success at competition. The Eagle Battalion was able to outperform several other schools in the RGV that are known to dominate these skill competitions. Last year, the Eagle Battalion won one 3rd Place trophy. This year, the Cadets did an exceptional job to achieve major success. The Eagle Battalion has not placed in the top three for Armed or Unarmed Drill Team in the last several years.

During the last skills competition held at PSJA Memorial High School on March 22, 2014, Eagle Battalion competing against 21 other schools in the RGV. Eagle Battalion received 1st Place for Armed Drill Team Regulation, 3rd Place for Unarmed Drill Team Regulation, 3rd Place for Overall Armed Drill Team, 3rd Place for Overall Female Color Guard and 3rd Place for Overall All Competition.

On February 15, 2014, Mission Eagle Battalion also competed against eight other RGV high schools at Grulla High School in Volleyball, Cadet Carry, Tug of War, Shuttle Run, Basketball, Color Guard, Cadet Challenge, Armed Drill, Drill and Ceremony and Relay. The Eagle Battalion received 1st Place for Drill and Ceremony, 2nd Place for Volleyball, 3rd Place for Color Guard and 3rd Place for Armed Drill.

At our first competition held at Palmview High School on January 18, 2014, Eagle Battalion competed against 24 other RGV high schools in a skills competition. Eagle Battalion received 3rd Place for Unarmed Drill Inspection and 3rd Place for Unarmed Regulation.

The Cadets of the Mission High School JROTC Eagle Battalion should be very proud to have achieved and earned such great success in a short period of time and still under the duress of almost losing their JROTC program. Through hard work and exceptional Cadet leadership provided by the Captains of the Drill and Special Teams and all Team members made it evident that the Eagle Battalion is once again strong, solid and a force to be reckoned with in future competitions and challenges. GO Eagle Battalion!
