ROTC Defeats Region, Takes on the World

Here at Penn State, we take a lot of pride in being number one. The Penn State Army ROTC team helped boost our university-wide ego by winning the regional Ranger Challenge Competition on Oct. 24 near West Point, New York.

The 10-person team will now move on to compete in the Sandhurst Military Skills Competition on April 15-16, 2011 at the United States Military Academy at West Point. The competition will host teams both nation- and world-wide. According to Major Dale Titus, the team will compete in events including obstacle courses, land navigation, rope-bridge assembly, paddling zodiac rafts, and more.

“I’d like to believe we’ll do well because we’ve got a great team, but the competition is pretty steep,” Titus said. “Only time will tell.”
