From Col. Laurence Hutto '87, PMS, The Citadel (Feb 20, 2012) -
This past weekend we sent two teams from the Army Department to compete against the other Senior and Junior Military Colleges at Ft Knox, Kentucky.  The two teams finished in 1st and 4th place.  Our first place team will now compete at the Sandhurst Challenge that is held each year at West point from 20-21 April 2012.  All of the United States Service Academies, 8 qualifying University ROTC teams, the United States Military Academy Preparatory School team, and international teams from Britain's Royal Military Academy Sandhurst (RMAS), Canada’s Royal Military College (RMC), Afghanistan's National Military Academy, the Chinese Military Academy, and the Chilean Military School.  We have an exceptional group of young men and women that will represent The Citadel.  From what I gather, this is the first time that we will be able to compete at this level in 10 years. I will keep you posted during their training and if we can find time on your calendar, I know that they would be appreciative of you talking to them before they depart!
