GCHS NJROTC participated in the first inter-service drill meet of the year. They placed 3rd overall and ended the meet with 11 trophies spread across many categories but, cadets also gained motivation, team work, responsibility, discipline, self control, and it helped cadets forms a closer connection with one another.
Out of all the cadets interviewed, 85% said that drill meets are a necessity for the NJROTC program since drill meets get cadets to do their best and set and meet their goals. Drill meets also allow cadets to show off their hard work when they compete against other schools giving them experience along the way. One cadet says “Drill motivates cadets to do better and without drill meets a lot of people won’t care or do as good.’’
In addition to congratulating everyone who participated at the drill meet, special shout-out to Cadet Kyle Horiski who placed 1st in unarmed knockout & Cadet Olivia Jones who placed in both armed and unarmed female individuals. We are very proud of our cadets.
