Port Angeles High School NJROTC Results from January 27 Competition at Everett High SchoolYour NJROTC Roughriders had another successful weekend at their second divisional competition at Everett High School.  A total of seven  high schools were present to compete. This was a tough weekend for the team due to some personnel losses due to injuries, grades, other school events, and even a Disneyland vacation, but the team pulled through in the end and did a superb job. The following were the results:

Armed Drill - First Place
Unarmed Drill - Fourth Place
Color Guard #1 - Second Place
Color Guard #2 - Third Place
Physical Training - First Place

Shout out for our PAHS Iron Women: Ellie Hiigel took first place, Kathryn Guttormsen took second place and Erin Edwards took third place!
