Local JROTC Members Head For National Competition

A group of JROTC members from Memorial High School took off for Florida Tuesday.

They will take part in an eight-day drill competition.

They practice five days a week to get their routine down.

The school has taken part the last 15 years, placing 4th in the nation last year.

They tell us it's going to be a lot of hard work and determination.

"I wanna take first but the competition there is good," says senior Scott Engel. "So as long as we stick to what we've been practicing, I think we'll be good and place pretty high."

We wish them the best of luck and will let you know how they do.
