On Dec. 5, 32 cadets of the Incline High School Highlander Battalion attended the annual Washoe County JROTC Military Ball.

The theme of this year’s JROTC Military Ball was “100 Years of JROTC.” The evening began with a receiving line that included various members of the school district administration as well as student leadership from each school.

Once the receiving line was completed, the second most anticipated event of the evening began, the announcement of the 2015 Military Ball King and Queen from each school.

This year, C/LTC Sara Sanchez walked away with the title of Military Ball Queen, and C/MAJ Chris Doogan secured the title of Military Ball King. After each school had the opportunity to crown its royalty, the evening’s most awaited activity began, the dance.

Until 11 p.m., the students were able to dance the evening away under the watchful eye of JROTC instructors. At 11 p.m. the music stopped, and the buses were loaded for the trip back to the various schools throughout the district.

While the schools may all share rivalry, no doubt everyone in attendance had a great time and looking forward to next year’s JROTC Military Ball.
