Despite cool temperatures, a rigorous training plan, and some anxious nerves C/1LT Trinity Bailey, C/SFC Autumn Wills, and C/PFC Kayla Marin (not pictured), pushed through to earn the National Physical Fitness Award on the Cadet Challenge. C/SFC Willis a PHS Sophomore topped all Cadets with an overall score of 405 points, she credited her family and the support of her Army Instructors for pushing her to achieve this rare feat. C/2LT Bailey, a Senior and member of the Varsity Girls Basketball Team felt that her training for basketball was a huge help in helping her achieve her goal. C/PFC Marin was pleasantly surprised by her efforts as she admits she was not expecting to do so well. All three Cadets look forward to the Spring in trying to improve on their overall Cadet Challenge scores and earn the Presidential Physical Fitness Award. Great Job, Cadets. GO PUMAS!!!!!!
