GISD Liberty Battalion Competes at Nationals

After placing first overall at State in March, GISD Liberty Battalion NJROTC had an awesome experience at Navy Nationals in Pensacola, Florida on April 1-2. 

Overall, at NJROTC Nationals (Academic, Athletic & Drill Championship) , Liberty Battalion came in 16 out of 27 teams. This is an outstanding accomplishment for a first-time unit, with excellent results and execution of performances by all members.

Congratulations to Chief James Bowman's Unarmed Exhibition team which took the 2nd Place Trophy only after three tie-breakers (it's the first time in history that it took that many tie-breakers). 

Chief Charles Gooseby's Athletic Teams did an outstanding job in physical fitness and took the 5th Place Trophy in the Relay Run.

Both trophies are winners across all the State of Texas and the Nation.

We are GISD proud of these cadets and their incredible year of accomplishments.
