The Coral Springs High School Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps competed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas on Sept. 24, where over 50 cadets took part in an Army competition — while being the only Air Force School.

There were five events, with the first being a 5k team run where students were timed until the last member crossed the line. The second event was litter carry, where members took turns carrying the litter for one mile. Teams then had to form a bridge until the last person on the team crossed. The fourth event was the tire flip which was capped off by an obstacle course.

“With team effort and the dedication of every person participating, Coral Springs High School held their own and will continue to put their best foot forward in future competitions,” said Sgt. William Ethridge.

West Broward finished first, followed by Everglades High School and Marjory Stoneman Douglas. Next, CSHS will compete on Oct. 15 at Everglades High School and participate in some smaller scaled events in November at Sickles High School in Tampa.
