Landrum High School has the most successful record in Junior ROTC Raider meet competition, and the Cardinals did not disappoint on Saturday, placing first overall among 12 teams who competed in warm, sunny conditions at Landrum High. Landrum’s Raider team, under the direction of Lt. Col. Robert Sanders, placed first in the litter carry (shown here), obstacle course, MAFPT (Modified Army Physical Fitness Test) and 5K run. In the litter carry, teams carried a litter loaded with three 45-pound barbell plates, for some 800 yards. LHS Raider team members carrying the litter here are, from Terry Juarez and Will Harrison holding the front of the litter, and Alex Rollins and Juan Chavez holding the rear, with team members Kane Duncan (far back) and Andrew Scruggs (far right). The Cardinals placed second in the truck pull/logistics relay, and third in the rope bridge competition. (photo by Mark Schmerling)
