On Saturday, Dec. 13, the Incline High School Highlander Battalion competed in the annual JROTC Brigade Drill Competition at Reno High School.

At this competition, Highlander cadets were scored against cadets from 14 other JROTC schools in the area. The Highlanders competed in regulation events such as Color Guard Drill, Platoon Drill with Arms, Platoon Drill without Arms, and Individual Guide-On Drill.

All four of the Highlander teams performed exceptionally at the drill competition, making this year another successful year in drill for the Highlander Battalion.

Also, on Saturday, Dec. 6, 32 cadets of the Highlander Battalion attended the annual Washoe County JROTC Military Ball.

This year’s Military Ball was held at the Reno Convention Center. The evening’s activities began at 6:30 p.m. with an initial outfit check, followed by a receiving line of various members of JROTC and Washoe County School District staff.

After completion of the receiving line, Military Ball royalty candidates awaited the announcement of selected King and Queens.

This year, C/LTC Alex Resney and C/MAJ Jasmine Crandall were nominated as our princesses. C/MAJ Joe Prater and C/MAJ Nick Votaw were nominated as our princes.

Following a very close race, C/LTC Alex Resney and C/MAJ Joe Prater edged ahead of the competition and were crowned this year’s king and queen.

The last few hours of the evening were spent dancing and socializing. A good time was certainly had by all.
