One team, one sound

In November, Ramstein High School’s drill team competed at the Aviano High School drill invitational in Italy. The cadets competed in three of the events: Color Guard, Armed Exhibition and Regulation team.

“For my first drill competition it was pretty exciting,” said Cadet 2nd Lt. Addison Ptomey, who carried the Air Force flag for Ramstein High School. “Our color guard did great considering we had two weeks of practice with all four of us.”

 Although Ramstein’s color guard did not place, the armed saber team did.

“I was surprised and pleased with the entire team’s performance at Aviano,” said Cadet Maj. Juan Shober, who was the commander of the saber team and the whole Ramstein drill team.

The drill team placed third overall and hopes to win it all at Europeans.
