Brain Brawl on Their Way to Phoenix Arizona to Defend The Navy National Title

The Brain Brawl Team competed at the Area-12 Championship 24 March, at Middleburg High School in Middleburg Florida. The team would have had to qualify either 1st or 2nd at the competition in order to advance to the Navy Nationals. That really didn't matter for North Cobb-Harrison Team. Because they are defending champions, the team had already secured a spot at Navy Nationals. However, that didn't stop them from placing 2nd at Area-12. In addition, Cadet Bowman wow'd the judges during Brawl Stars, an individual competition, winning the match convincingly. Bravo Zulu team and good luck in Arizona.

Cadets Survive the "Wrath" of Parris Island During this Year's BLT.

During the week of 24-27 October, 2017 North Cobb~Harrison NJROTC Cadets conducted their annual BLT trip hosted at Parris Island in South Carolina. Cadets endured, "weary" wakeup calls, "ornery" Drill Instructors, a "tearful" Gas Chamber, and "overwhelming" Obstacle Courses. Cadets were exposed to the riggers and challenges of Recruit Training while gaining a better understanding of what it takes to become a United States Marine. As seen above, cadets received briefs in the location of the depots legendary "Yellow Footprints", the site if which every recruit is introduced to the first time they set foot on Parris Island. Cadets were also briefed by Combat Swim Instructors and PMI's (Primary Marksmanship Instructors), as well as the traditional DI Uniform Inspection. Special thanks to the parents that help chaperone the trip. The unit really appreciates thier support. Without them, the trip would never have taken place. (See additional photos scrolling in below slideshow.)
