In December, West Feliciana High School competed against Zachary High in the inaugural Army versus Navy Junior ROTC 7-on-7 flag football game.

Zachary’s Army Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps program hosted West Feliciana’s Navy Junior ROTC program the same day as the annual college football Army-Navy game, Dec. 13.

“The schools chose to honor and commemorate the military academies playing each other,” said retired Maj. Leslie Martin, senior Army instructor at Zachary High.

Zachary’s Army team defeated West Feliciana’s Navy players 56-35.

Game officials were members of the Louisiana Army National Guard.

“Following the game, the cadets met for pizza, sodas and interservice camaraderie,” Martin said.
