At a competition held earlier in the school year, the Lugoff-Elgin High School drill team lines up and prepares to march to its next event. The team is heading off for U.S. Army 4th Brigade’s Best of the Best Drill Competition to be held later this month in Hickory, N.C.

The U.S. Army has invited Lugoff-Elgin High School’s (L-EHS) drill team to participate in the 4th Brigade Best of the Best Drill Competition, which will be held in February.

“This invite is a big deal for JROTC as only 3-5 percent of Army JROTC programs are invited to compete. Our drill/color guard did a great job during first semester and this invitation is the fruit of their labor,” Senior Army Instructor Rayford McDowell said.

This year, the competition will be hosted by Bandy’s High School in Hickory, N.C., and only 334 teams are invited to participate. Because the L-EHS cadets earned their spot in this competition, the Army will cover their expenses.

“Our cadets will have travel, lodging and meals paid by Cadet Command,” McDowell said.

Some of the competitions the cadets will participate in include: PLT Armed Inspection, PLT Armed Regulation, PLT Unarmed Regulation, Color Guard, PLT Armed Exhibition and PLT Unarmed Exhibition.

“I am sure they will represent L-EHS well,” McDowell said.
