On Thursday January 21, the Fightin’ Tiger Battalion conducted its first diagnostic Army Physical Fitness Test(APFT) of the semester at Norman Outdoor Track. ML1s, ML2s, and the Clemson Ranger Club participated in the testing.
The upperclassmen completed their APFT earlier in the week. This allowed the ML4s to plan and lead the testing, while ML3s shadowed the senior graders. This provided the ML3s with a great opportunity to learn how to lead and conduct an APFT. Normally, APFTs are held at 0530 in the morning, but due to weather conditions and an open lab schedule, the FTB held this evaluation at 1530.
47 ML1s joined in the testing and as a class, averaged an overall score of 219. The ML2 class fielded 37 participants who averaged a score of 243. APFT scores are based on a 300 scale and achieving a 300 or above is a great accomplishment. Three freshmen Cadets, Benjamin McCall, Sean Murphy, and Dennis Phillips, scored a 300. In the ML2 class, the 300s were John Dunn, Roland Hakes, and Kathleen Vogel.
The Fightin’ Tiger Battalion is proud of its outstanding physical performers and looks to improve the physical abilities of all Cadets. Recognition is also due to the Clemson Athletic Department for granting the FTB use of their facilities.
