For the 13th consecutive year, the Fish Drill Team of the Texas A&M University Corps of Cadets has claimed the national title at Tulane University’s NROTC Mardi Gras Drill Meet.

This prestigious event hosts drill teams from across the country, most of which are primarily comprised of upperclassmen, while the Fish Drill Team is made up entirely of freshman cadets. 

The Texas A&M team won three out of the five competition events and was named the overall champion of the meet, edging out teams from the United States Military Academy and Norwich University. 

This success comes as a result of months of intense training for the Fish Drill Team. Corps officials said with this representation of Texas A&M at the national level, the class of 2026 has now made its mark in the Fish Drill Team’s storied history.
