Drill & Exhibition Team
The Drill Team is a team that deals with the exactness of marching. The members of the team are scored on their ability to march, with or without drill rifles, as exactly as possible.
The Exhibition team is a team that competes at the same competitions alongside the Drill team, but along with being graded on preciseness and the exactness of their ability to march, they are also scored on creativity with and without rifles.

The team is quite simply cadets shooting air rifle pellets at a target. The air rifles are top of the line. The members are scored on their ability to precisely shoot a target consistently from ten meters away. Our team has won the Indiana State Championship twice, also our team has qualified for multiple National level Championships.

This team is our brain team. The members of the team take tests once every couple of months. These tests are SAT and ACT questions on math, English, and world events. If the teams pass the first test, they progress to the second, and if they pass the second with a high enough score, they do the third test in Washington, D.C., where they compete against the other top teams in JROTC.
The Leadership Team tests Cadets’ knowledge about leadership. These Cadets are hand-selected to be on this team. They compete against other JROTC programs around the country. The top teams go and compete in Washington, D.C.
