The team now travels to Nationals this weekend to compete against 24 other states from across the country. The CrossFit-style competition includes six hours of athletic events with cadets completing all events as a team rather than as individuals.
Team members are: Team Commander Sgt. Major Dylan Burgess and Alex Godfrey, Karla Gonzalez, Kendrick Jean, Safyrah Jean Audrey Rupert, Jacob Schwarzman, Natalie Sutherland, Warren Teachworth, Will Testerman, Phil Wahlbom and Tera Yeager. The team is coached by teacher First Sgt. Greg A. Anderson.
