The Rockcastle County Rocket Battalion Raider and Drill teams competed in the Whitley County Raider/Colorguard Competition this past weekend on Saturday, October 8th. The Drill Team competed in the areas of Squad Drill, Color Guard, and Academic Team, the two former consisting of the graded execution of a predetermined sequence of commands and actions, with the latter a series of academically challenging questions.
