Published: November 7, 2019 Author: Staff reports

Ohio University’s Bobcat Battalion Army ROTC Ranger Challenge Team earned third place at the Bold Warrior Challenge, held October 25-27 at Fort Knox, Kentucky. In the Bold Warrior Challenge, 38 Army ROTC programs based in Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee compete against each other.

During the weekend-long event, 11-member cadet teams are tested on their military knowledge, physical abilities, and mental agility. Events include land-navigation, building and crossing a one-rope bridge across a river, and a four-mile-long ruck run. The Bobcat Battalion team placed third for the third time in four years.
