Pine-Richland High School Air Force JROTC hosted its fourth annual drill competition on Dec. 1 at Pine-Richland High School.

The community was invited to attend as cadets hosted a total of 12 schools from three states including Midview, Knox County, Trumbull Career & Technical Center, Parkersburg South, North Allegheny, West Mifflin, Plum, Laurel Highlands, Norwin, McDowell, Cathedral Prep, Marion Center and Pine-Richland.

It turned out to be the largest event to date as more than 300 cadets took part in the event.

Pine-Richland earned first overall with the highest points, with Knox earning second and McDowell High School third.

P-R also earned first in the Varsity Unarmed and Academic Quiz Bowl.

North Allegheny earned first in the Inspection category.

P-R took second place in Varsity Armed, JV Unarmed and Inspection, and third place in Unarmed Exhibition, JV Color Guard and JV Armed.
