HAMPTON, Va. (November 6, 2018) –On October 20, 2018, the Hampton University Pirate Battalion Ranger Challenge Team competed in Ranger Challenge 2018 at Fort Pickett, VA.
The Hampton team placed #32 out of 45, which was an improvement from last year. It was a great day for the Cadets. They enjoyed all the events to include rucking 12.83 miles, team building, camaraderie, and time spent with fellow Cadets/Cadre within the Brigade. The Pirate Team learned about themselves and grew stronger as individuals and improved as a team. A young Pirate team with a number of MS1s attending for the first time represented themselves very well. The outcome was a motivated Team with some soreness but a group of improved Cadets. Also, Hampton's Nursing major Cadets got some hands on experience.
