The Texan Battalion cadets were named the Grand Champions of 2010 Fifth Annual Falcon Battalion Invitational Military Skills Meet held on Feb. 13 in Huffman. This is the second consecutive year the Texans competed against all the military services' JROTCs in the gulf coast region and won the championship.
The Texans were eager to complete the competition considering it was postponed twice due to inclement weather. Despite cold and windy weather conditions, over 75 Texan cadets competed in nine male and female categorized events which include serious events such as unarmed drill, fitness, rock wall climbing, obstacle course and more.
In addition to the Grand Championship trophy, the Texans returned to Pasadena with a record number of 18 team trophies. This victory follows the recent Texan grand championship victory in January in La Porte. The Texan Battalion's last major competition of the 2009- 2010 school year will be at Houston ISD's Bluebonnet Invitational Drill and Military Skills Meet on March 5- 6 held at Caesar E. Chavez High School.
