On Saturday October 5, 2019, the Port St. Lucie High School Jaguar Battalion hosted a practice Raider meet. This meet is a warm-up for the upcoming Raider season. The teams got the chance to work together efficiently and effectively while also seeing how well each teammate performed under pressure. The competition consisted of different physical and mental challenges. Teams all started with the relay race and moved on to other sections of the competition such as a rope bridge, tire flip, cross country rescue, and a team obstacle course. Although it was just a practice meet, every team worked their hardest to perform their best. Port St. Lucie High School will also host two other regional level events on October 26 and November 9. Please come out and support the Jaguar Battalion. This article and photography were produced by Cadet Sergeant Seaira Swain and Cadet Major Alexis Morris.
