On Saturday, March 7th, our very own Raiders team competed in Cadet Challenge, a SDUSD Joint Brigade competition which took place at Madison High School. The Raiders team went against athletic teams from twelve other units in our school district. Our competing cadets participated in these categories: push-ups, sit-ups, basketball toss and relay race. Despite the competitiveness of each cadet, it was a very social and spirited atmosphere. Thank you so much to those who competed!
