An incredible and somewhat surprising day for the Brookland Bearcats JROTC. They left for the Northside Raider competition at 0530 and not only competed against 22 schools from Arkansas and Oklahoma, but they also managed to edge out a win and capture the overall 1st place trophy. We are so proud of these kids. Only 2 seniors make up our team this year, meanwhile 2 8th graders and 3 9th graders were able to absolutely bring it and pull off an unprobable win. Way to go, JROTC!!!
