CHARLOTTE, NC – On Saturday, March 4, 2023, the Olympic High School JROTC Raiders Team participated in the annual Lee County Raiders Meet. The Lee County Raiders Meet is one of the most anticipated events for our Raider Teams.
For the past several months, the Raider Team has logged several hours practicing and preparing for the competition. Events such as the 5K run, HUMVEE Pull, the obstacle course, the rope bridge, and the litter and carry helped propel the Olympic Raider Team in the standings. Due to their strength and endurance, the Olympic H.S. Raider Team placed third overall in the competition. This allowed the team to participate in the upcoming 4th BDE Best of the Best Raiders Championship on March 25, 2023.
