On May 5, the Central Crossing NJROTC Drill Team went to Daytona Beach, Fla., to compete against hundreds of their peers in the 2012 National High School Dream Team Championships and came home winners. The cadets captured first place in the color guard, first place in the armed regulation drill events, and fifth place in the uniform personnel inspection event. The cumulative success crowned them the champs in challenge level division. The cadets will compete in the masters level next year, which is considered to be the toughest division at the nationals.
