The Marauder Battalions “Marauders Own” made history on April 1st, 2023, when for the first time in their school History won the coveted Pacific Rim Drill Meet, making them the best in the Pacific.

The competition was tough over 26 team from all services throughout Hawaii and as far as Guam squared up toe to toe to claim the title of best in the Pacific. The top teams from the Air Force, Navy, and Army JROTC’s from across the pacific sent their best. The Competition was tight, with the top team switching in the standings and top three positions all throughout the day. But when the dust settled only one team came out on top, Waipahu High School’s “Marauders Own” Drill Team. Congratulations Marauders we look forward to seeing what the future hold for this young drill team.
