The Douglas County High School Tigers Army JROTC Leadership and Academic Bowl (JLAB) Teams will compete at the National Championship in Washington, D.C., this summer.

The competition will take place at Catholic University of America from June 16-25 and will pit DCHS Army JROTC cadets against the winning Army JROTC teams from across the country.

“This is the first year in the history of the program that we have had both teams make it to the National Championship simultaneously,” said Lt. Col. Andrew Lark. “We are extremely proud of our cadets for their many accomplishments. Two years ago, we made it to the playoffs with the academic team and our goal this year is to go all the way with both teams.”

1st Sgt. retired Kelley French added, “We are so proud of this group to represent the Douglas County HS JROTC Tiger Battalion.”

The Leadership Team includes: Gabriella Williams, Tyler Powell, Bryson Lyons and Gracie Sherburne. The Academic Team includes: Mishell Ruiz Borrego, Samantha Trujillo Niembro, Ariella Oduja and Chanel Je.
