Bethel, NY – On November 19th, Cadets of FRHSD NJROTC were privileged to compete in marksmanship, academics, drill, and inspection at Bethel High School in Bethel, CT, against 18 sister units from throughout NJROTC Area 4. Participating with a combined crowd of over 800 people, FRHSD NJROTC deployed a contingent of 66 cadets, many of whom have never experienced competition before, to participate in this significant event. CNHS NJROTC received first place in “Unarmed Varsity Regulation Drill,” Third Place in “Varsity Color Guard,” and 2nd Place “Overall,” with our “Unarmed Varsity Regulation Drill” team accruing 98 points out of a potential 100. Accompanied by Senior Naval Science Instructor Major Gregory Penczak (ret.), and Naval Science Instructor Master Chief Dunkin (ret.), as well as eight dedicated chaperones, cadets were ultimately given the opportunity to compete, evaluate their mistakes and victories, and learn valuable lessons as we accelerate into our season.
