West Creek Team 2 won the recent Raider Challenge JROTC competition at Austin Peay State University.

The Sept. 21 event drew high schools – and about 90 cadets – from throughout Middle Tennessee to compete in several challenges such as rope climbs and rope bridge; a two-mile run; casualty and medical evacuations; castle raid and tire resupply; and a field leader reaction course.

Schools included Rossview, Clarksville, Northwest, Montgomery Central, Kenwood, West Creek and Ravenwood high schools, and the challenges happened across Austin Peay’s Clarksville campus.

Thirty-two of Austin Peay’s ROTC cadets helped organize the event.
