On the 8-12th of February, South Brunswick’s very own JROTC rifle team went to Anniston, Alabama, to compete in the Army JROTC Air Rifle Service Nationals for a chance to compete for the national title. The participating cadets were: Riley Paglione, Juan Ramos, Baylee Donato-Wisnewski, and the commander Jayvon Hayles. The first day was a practice round held on the 9th. The second day started the competition. After shooting for competition and the scores were in, Riley Paglione scored a personal record high with a 491, with the JROTC rifle team commander Jayvon Hayles, a senior in his last year, to leave an impression on the future of the team and the program, leading the team in scoring with a score of 514 out of 600. The team placed 26th out of 3,945 schools, the highest they have placed in the past 5 years. Congratulations to the South Brunswick JROTC Rifle team, and good luck next year.
