Fresh off of their eighth-place finish at the Air Force Junior ROTC Nationals Drill Meet in March, the Randolph-Macon Academy Air Force Junior ROTC VA-091 Drill Team traveled to Atlee High School in Atlee, Virginia, for the 2019 Virginia Air Force Association JROTC State Drill Championship meet on April 27, 2019.
The Yellow Jackets went in with confidence. They had taken eighth place overall while competing in just one division of Nationals (the unarmed division), and they knew their armed drill performances were just as good, if not better. However, they also knew they had to bring their best performance, as the competition would be stiff, and the expectations, both at home and at the drill meet, were high.
The Armed Exhibition Team and Color Guard Team both took first place. Armed Regulation took second and Inspection came in third. Unarmed Exhibition claimed fourth, and Unarmed Regulation took fifth. Overall, the Yellow Jackets placed first once again, giving them back-to-back State Championship titles!
