We (Hillcrest High School JROTC) were disappointed that we were not available for the LL 5K on Sat 23 Sep, instead we participated in a Drill Meet at Miss State Univ in Starkville MS.
A Drill meet involves about 60 of our students so it is our #l priority. This particular meet included 26 schools from 3 States. Good news: HHS JROTC Physical Training Team (all of the HS TTC runners that you know) are on the PT Team. Competition consists of as many CORRECT -Army Standards - Push ups as you can do in 2 minutes, as many set ups as you can do in 2 minutes, and a timed 1 mile run.
The HHS PT A Team was 1st overall, the B Team was 2d overall, and we also had the top Male and top Female entry.
In other words we won everything in PT.
93 Push ups in 2 minutes
96 Set ups in 2 minutes
and a 5:26 mile.
When one of the JROTC students was interviewed as to ability he said two things, practice at school, and running in competition with TTC. Thanks, TTC.
