Physical Training Team Commanding Officer Lana Truese celebrates with some of her NJROTC friends, who are also Juniors actively involved in the unit. Cadet Truese earned a second place overall medal in the sit-up competition.
On Saturday, Oct. 18, joined by 30 officiating George Washington University (GWU) Navy ROTC midshipmen, Herndon High Cadets (NJROTC) celebrated their team effort in hosting and competing in the GWU Field Meet. The Herndon cadets and cadets from eight other units from throughout Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C., pushed themselves to the limit as they engaged in grueling physical fitness competitions and celebrated good sportsmanship. Wearing bright pink shirts reading “Sting Cancer,” the Herndon Cadets also used this large venue to raise awareness for breast cancer research.
The Herndon Cadets thank the midshipmen for their dedicated support to this annual highlight of the physical training team season. They also welcome readers to learn more about their outstanding NJROTC program by visiting http://www.herndonnjrotc.com/.
