Central Washington University cadets qualified for silver on one event and gold on another at the 2014 Sandhurst Military Skills Competition at the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, N.Y., April 11-12.
Cadet Codey Paulsen, a law and justice major at CWU, said the competition taught him lessons about being a good leader and gave his team invaluable experience.
The competition hosted 57 teams. CWU was one of eight ROTC teams to participate. The Wildcat Battalion Ranger Challenge Team qualified for Sandhurst after winning the 2014 8th Brigade Ranger Challenge Competition earlier this year. They beat 31 other teams from schools across Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Alaska, Hawaii and Guam.

Central Washington University Cadets grab the "monster" tire and flip it 20 meters one way, then turn around and flip it back during the Sandhurst Competition April 11-12, 2014, at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y.. The tire flip was part of a four-station Department of Military Instruction Challenge designed as a team-building event. From the event the Cadets should learn troop leading procedures, anticipating challenges they are going to face as a future platoon leader, and how to manage the strengths and weaknesses and dispositions of their Soldiers during operations.
