Members of Gulf High’s Navy Junior ROTC armed drill team perform during the 30th annual Pass in Review on April 2 at their school’s stadium.

It was the first day of spring break for Pasco County students, but members of Gulf High's Navy Junior ROTC were at their school on April 2 to take part in the 30th annual Pass in Review.

Under the watchful eyes of Lt. Cmdr. Stephen Nesthus, Chief Petty Officer Jose Rodriguez and representatives from veterans groups, the cadets strutted their stuff in the school stadium.

Recognition was in order for the program recently won first and second place in NJROTC Florida state Academic Brain Bowl and garnered top national academic honors for the second year in row.

Congratulations go out to cadets for again taking first place in the Navy sponsored Academic National Championship. The school was the first in Florida to ever take the nationals, and now it has done it twice. The Gulf High cadets placed first out of 1,615 teams from across the United States, Europe, Guam and Japan.

Kudos go out to Cadet Cody Boyet, who scored the nation's high score with a 95, followed by Cadet Matthew Harmaz with a score of 92 and Cadet Aaron Heusted, who scored 91. Other team members are Cadet Brandon Harvey and Cadet Wade Scott.
