The Port Saint Lucie High School Jaguar Raider team competed in Fort Pierce Westwood’s Raider Competition against 17 teams from 7 other schools. The competition consisted of six events: 3 mile team run, Cross Country Rescue, The Raider Fitness Challenge, 200lb tire flip over a 100-meter course, an obstacle course and the One-Rope Bridge event.
Before the Cross Country Rescue, everyone takes a written first aid test, during the event the team simulates a casualty by carrying an 80-120lb stretcher over a mile long course while wearing three 30lb ruck sacks. To complete the Raider Fitness Challenge the team must go through a course consisting of a 10-yard low crawl, a 40-yard 20-30lb sandbag carry, an obstacle to either go over or under, a speed agility maze, a 120lb object to carry around 50’ length, and a turnaround point to repeat the course in reverse.
The Jaguars swept the competition with the male team and the female team winning First Place Over All. Males placed first in 3-mile team run, tire flip, obstacle course, and the One-Rope Bridge. Females took first in the 3-mile run, cross country rescue, obstacle course, and the One-Rope Bridge. The mixed team placed first for the One-Rope Bridge. We are very proud of all the cadets who worked hard and took home 11 first place trophies.
