As a member of the American Military College and Schools of the United States (AMCSUS), Admiral Farragut Academy was invited to participate in a National Military Drill competition for the second year in a row.
Our drill team performed a routine after being given only five minutes to prepare for the sequence of movements. The performance was filmed and judged along with those of 27 other schools in our class and sent to AMCSUS for judging.
This year, a Physical Fitness Challenge was added as another competition. The fitness challenge team included five male and five female cadets who competed in push-ups, sit-ups, and a mile and a half run. Results were compiled and sent, like those of the drill competition, to AMCSUS for judging.
Farragut took First Place in the National Physical Fitness Challenge and was ranked number 1 of 27.
Congratulations to our ladies team, consisting of Jolie Caya, Haley Saylor, Brielle Benefield, Alexis Hernandez and Abby Fiorillo.
Congratulations to the men’s team consisting of Jason Chen, Philip Henderson, Alex Fiorillo, Ashton Raymer and James Monahan.
“The entire school is proud of our team,” said CMDR Shock. “The trophy has been presented and resides in the Office of the Commandant and each participant has been awarded the Unit Service NJROTC Ribbon for representing our Academy in an outstanding manner.”
