BOCA RATON, FL ( —  Boca Raton High School’s Bobcat Battalion traveled to Orlando March 8, 2014, where they won the Navy Junior ROTC (NJROTC) Florida State Championship. The Bobcats competed against 23 other high school JROTC unit finalists out of 60 units in the state. This is the 6th state title for the Bobcats.

To prepare for this competition, the Cadets began hitting the books, participating in physical fitness training and practicing drill maneuvers two weeks before school started last August.

Cadet Captain Jaymarie Colon-Perez led the Bobcat Battalion to this State Championship. The Cadets finished 1st in Academics, “Armed Basic Drill,” “Unarmed Basic Drill,” and “Overall Drill” and placed 2nd in Personnel Inspection. Cadets Jennifer Menke and Jack Woods took top honors on the Academic Test, placing 1st. The field meet was very tight down to the last two events.  It was between the Bobcats Battalion and their rivals, Flanagan High School.  The Bobcats ran like the wind to beat Flanagan in the 100 yard and 200 yard relays. When the dust finally settled, the Bobcats prevailed with 1st place overall, and Flanagan 2nd.

“All these efforts have gained the Cadets a well-deserved undefeated year in competition,” said Lieutenant Commander Ken Bingham. “Congratulations to the Cadets and Instructors SCPO Tim Core and CPO Edwin Morales.”
