Nimitz High JROTC headed to national competition

The Nimitz High School JROTC will compete at the JROTC Nationals April 5-6 in Pensacola, FL.

The cadets from Nimitz qualified for the national competition by placing fifth (out of 17 teams) at the National Qualifier held last month.

The cadets, under the direction of Lt. Commander Leslie Hobley and Petty Officer 1st Class Cliff Adams, finished first in two areas at the National Qualifier, Unarmed Exhibition and Color Guard. The cadets also finished in third place in Physical Training.

“The cadets displayed awesome sportsmanship throughout the competition,” Hobley said. “They worked extremely hard during the year and now they are being rewarded for all of that hard work and discipline.”
