One of the many events completed was the Houston ISD’s Blue Bonnet competition, a yearly event which showcases Houston’s many JROTC programs. The Pearland HS JROTC cadets experienced the large competition for the first time in their 30-year history. The Oiler Battalion placed 3rd overall out of 33 programs in the event which has over 6 events, not to mention those events sub events. The Oilers brought home 1st for female swim, 2nd female PT, 3rd male swim, and 3rd male PT.
