The Anchorage and Mat-Su School District JROTC detachments held their annual Raider Decathlon on 23 September 2023. Nine schools attended and competed, including Army JROTC programs from Bartlett, Colony, Dimond, and Bettye Davis-East High Schools. The weather was kind this year as over 150 Army, Air Force, Navy, and Marine JROTC Cadets ran, jumped, swung, and carried through an exciting day of challenges that they will remember for a lifetime.
