   J.R.O.T.C Rebel Battalion had their first competition at Ocean Springs High School on Oct. 22.

   The Rebel Battalion competed in a squad competition drill and ceremony. They had four teams, two girls and two boys, one armed and one unarmed of each. Each team consisted of seven cadets.

   According to Sergeant James Williams, they had issues with getting students to come to practice because most students did not have any way to get home after practice.

   They are very grateful for their upper cadets that participated in the competition.

   On Dec. 3 they have another competition at West Harrison High School. This competition is on the same day as the Lucedale Christmas Parade, so they will be performing in the parade when they get back from the competition.
