The East Surry JROTC Raider team awoke early on a recent Saturday for a trip to Ridgeway, VA, to take part in the Magna Vista VA State Western Region Raider Challenge at Magna Vista High School.

East Surry sent both its A-Team and B-Team for the competition and both fared well.

The A-Team finished second overall for the day and was recognized as the best North Carolina team in the March 18 competition.

Competing in the Junior Varsity competition, the B-team claimed an overall first place finish.

Also excelling was the East Surry Raider Captain Bradley Snow. Snow claimed first place medals in overall PT (testing physical fitness) and in the one-mile run.

The East Surry Raider A-Team will be returning to Magna Vista High School on April 22 to compete in the “Best of the Best Raider Challenge.”
