Scripps Ranch Air Force JROTC students celebrate their achievements.
Air Force JROTC cadets from Scripps Ranch High School recently returned home after taking fifth place in the JROTC Leadership and Academic Bowl in Washington, D.C.

Cadets Bryan Salinas, Alwin Hui, Monica Ngo, and Cameo Tsui made it to the final round in the competition, which tests students on math, science and English. Local and regional games eliminated all but 16 teams from the 183 that began last fall.

The Academic Bowl is sponsored by the College Options Foundation and is designed to help the students: increase scores on their college tests, such as the SAT and ACT;  increase their interest in pursuing a college degree; and boost team and unit spirit.The team was in Washington, D.C. from June 24-28.
