The only reason this field day was possible is because of our Military Career Councilors encouraging, leading and refereeing cadets through all events.
The second event is was the Ski Relay where two teams of four must move in unison to bring the ski 25 yards and back in the fastest time possible. Legacy JROTC closed the distance and came first in this event.
The third event consists of three sections, curl ups, push ups, and chin ups. The goal is to get as many reps possible in a one minute time period. All schools performed exceptionally but fell just short to Lake Ridge JROTC.
The fifth event was the wheelbarrow race. Cadets hold their teammate's legs, while the other cadet would run on their hands, and then switch and return to the start after switching positions with their teammate.
The duffle bag sprint was the sixth event of JROTC Field Day. This event is comprised of 5 cadets lifting a 45 pound, awkward duffle bag, and sprinting 25 yards, then turning around and passing it off to the next cadet in line.
In the eighth event, four cadets ran a 100-yard relay race. This event is all about overall speed and correctly setting up your teammate when it is their turn to race.
"Great turnout for today's field day, every school gave 110%. It was an honor to be a part of today's event, and I was impressed with everyone's performance. If you want more than just a job, that will literally take you places, think of the Navy. Whether it's 20 or just four years, the benefits are unmatched to anything you will ever do. If you are interested in traveling the world the Navy will provide views no one has ever experienced."

"To anyone considering a life changing career that is going to challenge you in ways beyond belief, both good and bad, that is what not only the Air Force, but the military in general has to offer. Every branch has it's own purpose and they all serve it very well. Less than 1% of American population gets the chance to serve the country and do something unique with their lives."
