Raiders Represent In Competition

Brandon Santana, Staff Writer

Santaluces’  JROTC Raiders team had their first competition Saturday at Atlantic High School. The Chiefs competed against twelve schools: Atlantic, Boca Raton, Dwyer, Forest Hill, Fort Pierce, Jupiter, Lake Worth, Palm Beach Central, Pahokee, Port St. Lucie, Seminole Ridge, and South Fork.

The Raiders competition was comprised of: a rope bridge course, in which raiders must tie ropes from both ends of wooden poles then cross without falling or touching the floor; a personal training test, where 500 push-ups, 500 sit-ups, and 100 pull-ups are divided amongst the team; a litter, which weighs roughly 150 pounds that has to be carried down to the baseball fields; a 200 pound log that has to be carried half way around the diamond; a 450 pound tire that has to be flipped halfway across the infield; and finally a sprint that loops around back to the finish.

The Alpha (A) team –had a finishing time of 37:55– and the Bravo (B) team– had a finishing time of  38:45. The Raiders worked hard Saturday so be sure to congratulate them.
