The Scripps Ranch High School (SRHS) Air Force Junior ROTC (AFJROTC) team, which consists of freshman Raymond Sun, sophomores Albert Gu and Alan Hang, and junior Jackwin Hui, won the Joint Leadership Academic Bowl (JLAB) in Washington, D.C. for the third year in a row. The Bowl is a nine-month competition in which teams complete three online timed academic tests several months apart. The SRHS team was one of the top 12 Air Force teams chosen out of 900 units to compete at the national level. Other military services also sent teams to represent their JROTC units, for a total of 64 teams.

The first day of the event consisted of intra-service competition to find the top team from each military branch. SRHS cadets beat out the competition and became the overall AFJROTC Academic Champions, advancing them to the national competition. After a close and exciting game of four rounds of competition, SRHS emerged victorious as the JLAB World Champions. Learn more about JLAB at www.cofcontests.com.
