Two Air Force Junior ROTC Raider teams from Floresville High School competed in the 2014 U.S. Open National Raider Championships on Jan. 18-19, winning both male and female Air Force Service Championship titles. The U.S. Open National Raider Championships are held annually during January at Camp Bullis in San Antonio.

The two-day competition attracted Junior ROTC Raider teams from schools as far away as Kansas to compete in the most rigorous of all JROTC competitions for a chance to win one of the two 2014 U.S. Open National Raider Air Force Service Championship titles.

The U.S. Open National Raider Championships consist of Masters (advanced) and Explorer (beginners) Divisions, both with male and female categories. The Masters Division includes five events, which include climbing a 45-degree, 1.25-mile hill while carrying 35-pound packs and descend back down; negotiating a one-quarter-mile course with seven obstacles while carrying 35-pound packs and a 95-pound mannequin on a stretcher; completing a 3.5-mile cross-country run; negotiating a one-quarter-mile course with 11 obstacles (including a 30-foot rope climb); and constructing a one-rope bridge to cross an 80-foot creek. Teams competing in the Explorer Division must complete the last three events.

Floresville High School Air Force Junior ROTC unit TX-20012 entered a male and female Masters team, and both won. The Jaguar Female Masters Raider Team, led by Cadet Ronda Ruiz, won the Female 2014 U.S. Open National Air Force Service Championship trophy. The Tiger Male Masters Raider Team, led by Cadet Barclay Smith, won the Male 2014 U.S. Open National Air Force Service Championship trophy.

More than 45 teams entered in the event, including San Antonio area Air Force Junior ROTC units such as John Jay, Clark, Pearsall, and Medina Valley high schools.
