Seventy students from five New Jersey high schools participated in the 1st Annual JROTC (Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps) Raider Competition on June 3 at the New Jersey Military Academy in Sea Girt. The 254th Regiment hosted the event between New Brunswick High School, Franklin High School, Hillside High School, Eastside High School and Lakewood High School.

The schools were broken down into teams of eight cadets, which competed in six different competitions: Army Physical Fitness Test, General Knowledge exam, First Aid/Litter Carry, Land Navigation, Obstacle Course and a 1.8-mile team run. The cadets showed an awesome display of motivation, teamwork and physical fitness throughout the grueling competition.

New Brunswick High School received top honors, but every school walked away with at least one trophy.
