The Mighty Rocket Battalion competed in a raider competition in Clay County on Saturday, October 22nd. Approximately 20 teams from various schools around Kentucky participated, including two teams, A and B, from the Rocket Battalion. The competition consisted of numerous challenging events, including Tug-of-War, Rope Bridge, a field obstacle course, an obstacle course and a mystery event, which was a mixed group of activities unbeknownst to the participating teams beforehand. Rockcastle’s B-team earned 2nd place in the obstacle course event and the A-Team placed 3rd overall, meaning the team may not have reached a podium position in each event, yet consistently performed very well in all of the events.
