                    In our 21st year, the Cougar Battalion is continuing to make itself known and respected. Due to our growing name and success, our SSHS Army JROTC Raider Team will be representing the 8th brigade at Raider Nationals in Georgia this November for the third time in the last four years! Our Drill team continues to stand out as the best by winning many competitions including back-to-back 1st place finishes at the Kaiser HS Army JROTC Annual Drill meet. The Cougar Rifle Team had another successful year with their postal team taking 1st at State and Varsity qualifying for the JROTC nationals where they placed 23rd in the Nation. The Battalion also maintains the only authentic JROTC WW2 Color Guard. With so many great things happening, we are sure to have another very successful year!
