“Cadets Win Grand Championship”
The FHS ROTC Varsity Rocket Team won the Grand Championship trophy placing first in all three categories of the competition at the Clark High School Fiesta Blast Rocket Meet. The JV team took second place overall placing in two of the three categories. Teams from Austin, Houston and the San Antonio area participated in event. The varsity team commander was Cadet Nicholas Sanders and other varsity members were cadets Jakeb Gagnon, James Roberson, Cassia Eckert, and Matthew Martinez. The JV team commander was Cadet Charles Zwies. Bringing home half the trophies up for grabs, it was the most successful meet for FHS ROTC ever. At two of the three spot landing distances, 30 yards and 100 yards, varsity team rockets hit the cones for two bullseyes, a first ever in the history of the rocket meet.
