SV Raiders Begin the Season with a Win!
The Spring Valley JROTC Raider Team competed last Saturday at Liberty High School in the Red Devil Challenge. Our cadets competed against 13 other schools, in a series of grueling strengths of feat and endurance across the campus. Spring Valley’s all male team earned first team honors for the first time in this particular competition, while the mixed team earned third place honors.
Powered with 10 veterans from last year, the Raiders have continued their winning streak from last year. The Raiders next competition will be in Charleston at Fort Dorchester in November.
