The Raider Battalion Drill Team is a group of cadets that specializes in drill and ceremonies. During the 2017 and 2018 seasons, Master Gunnery Sergeant Merritt led the Drill Team to the National Drill Meet. In the 2017 Meet, they placed in 5th, and in 2018, the team placed 8th.
The team varies from roughly 20-30 cadets that compete against schools nationwide. Our team competes in events such as: armed and unarmed regulation, armed and unarmed exhibition, and personnel inspection. In armed events, cadets use DDR - or Daisy Drill Rifles. Color Guard is also a component of the Drill Team.
The team assists cadets in MCJROTC in the regulation drill for our two major ceremonies, the Marine Birthday Ceremony and the Change of Command.
Due to COVID-19, there has been no events this year. The team is looking to comeback next year strong.
