: | DSN: 644-5657

MARINE CORPS BASE CAMP BUTLER, OKINAWA, JAPAN — April 1, 2010 — Okinawa’s own Kubasaki High School took top honors in Drill and third place in Marksmanship at the 2010 DoDEA Pacific Far East Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps competition hosted here March 22-24.

Osan American from the Republic of Korea and local contender Kadena High School tied for second place in Drill while Edgren High School from Misawa, Japan captured third in a field of 12 teams.
           
The Drill competition was comprised of Unit Inspection, Armed Regulation, Unarmed Regulation, Color Guard, and Armed or Unarmed Exhibition. The top three teams in Drill were determined by tallying the team points earned under each category to arrive at an overall total.

The three-day student activity that brought together all 12 DoDEA Pacific JROTC units formed by over 150 cadets, took place at Foster Field House and included a separately scored and awarded Marksmanship event. From a field of nine schools, M.C. Perry from Iwakuni, Japan finished first and Seoul American High School from the Republic of Korea took second.

Marksmanship categories included: Prone, Standing, Kneeling, Individual, Biathlon, and Team. Scores from the targets were recorded by a team of active duty judges and JROTC instructors and the final individual performance points were aggregated into a total overall team score; the top three units were awarded accordingly.
The 2010 Far East JROTC concluded with an awards banquet where the top three units in the Drill and Marksmanship events were recognized with team trophies and individual medals.
