Francis Lewis High School swept the New York City Drill Competition.

Francis Lewis High School stood at attention and swept the New York City Drill Competition, defeating opponents from schools throughout the five boroughs and Long Island on February 11.

The school faced off and was victorious against Xavier, Theodore Roosevelt, Long Island City, Uniondale, Morris, Wyandanch and Fort Hamilton High Schools in both armed and unarmed divisions.

With four different events, the competition was fierce. The schools took on each other in inspection, color guard, regulation drill and exhibition drill.

Francis Lewis’ two teams, the armed Patriot Guard and the unarmed Patriot Pride, both performed perfectly with the colors standing proudly.

The Armed Inspection platoon came soon after all of the color guard performances were completed. This was similar to the Unarmed Inspection platoon, except for the fact that each cadet had a rifle and had to know rifle commands. In the afternoon, Patriot Guard and Patriot Pride showed off their perfect drill movements, with each movement very sharp and in sync.

Patriot Pride rocked the floors with their sharp, synchronized movements as Patriot Guard spun and banged the floors with their rifles loudly and proudly, making each difficult movement seem simple.  Both Patriot Guard and Patriot Pride swept the board and took 1st place.
