The Creekview High School Army JROTC Program earned first place at the Georgia State Raider Championships!

The competition to determine the “best of the best” in Georgia was hosted in October by Spalding High School. Georgia has 12 JROTC Regions, each with 10 schools, and every Region sent its top three teams to the competition, based on their Region State Qualifying Competition. Creekview HS was the region winner.

Creekview HS JROTC instructor First Sgt. Greg Anderson coaches the team for the CrossFit-style competition — a six-hour series of athletic events, but with cadets completing all events as a team rather than as individuals.

Students on this year’s team, upon graduation, will be attending the United States Military Academy at West Point, University of Georgia and University of North Georgia, and will be serving in the United States Marine Corps, the United States Army, Army Reserves, and Georgia Army National Guard.

Team members are: Team Commander Thomas Musgrave, Assistant Commander Jessica Hankin, Alex Godfrey, Warren Teachworth, Tera Yeager, Natalie Sutherland, Cole Reece, Ryan Lamazares, Bianca Tupman, Audrey Rupert, Jacob Schwarzman and Aaron Freeman.

The team will be recognized by the Cherokee County School Board and Superintendent of Schools at the Board’s Nov. 16 meeting.
