The Coronado High School NJROTC will be hosting its first Drill Meet ever this Saturday beginning at 7am. Events will take place in the morning at Green Field. 15 High Schools will compete, including Mar Vista, Point Loma, Ramona, and Patrick Henry to name a few. Each school will have approximately 35 cadets at the drill meet. Eventually the competition will wind its way to the CHS football field. Captain Ken Ireland and 1st Sergeant Martin Gallegos of the Coronado NJROTC are the events coordinators. The Anchor Club is the booster club for the Coronado ROTC and will be providing volunteers to help at the event.

At 3pm the Navy Leapfrogs will be jumping into the stadium. Feel free to stop by and support the CHS NJROTC!
