The measured sound of marching feet and calls of cadence filled the air across the campus of Dawson County High School on Saturday, Sept. 29 as the Junior Reserve Office Training Corps (JROTC) of Cadets hosted 16 schools for the fourth Raider Meet of the season. Fielding 10 person teams in three categories (male, female and mixed) the Raiders competed as a small unit in a series of events designed to test their cohesiveness, coordination, discipline and physical fitness. Schools could run as many teams as they wanted to run and a total of 38 teams participated in the event with most schools running two men’s teams and a single female and mixed team. “There is no individual score,” said Instructor Steve Pamplin. “When the last person crosses the line that is when the team is finished.”
