The Lumpkin County JROTC Raider Team competed in six multi-program competitions this season and earned trophies from each one.
The team even brought home a first place overall trophy at the Cass High School Raider Challenge.
“This has been the best season since 2012 for the JROTC Raider team,” said team coach Maj. Jeffrey W. Moran.
Their success earned them a spot at the State Championship where the Lumpkin County mixed team (six male/four female) took home a third place trophy.
