Transcript ROTC on Campus "We scale down Robertson Stadium every semester," Captain Scott Brawley Captain Scott Brawley and Cadet Lisa Villareal make their way down the side of Robertson Stadium by Leslie Betts At the Spring semester drew to a close, members of the University of Houston's ROTC program celebrated their accomplishments and the 50 years that ROTC has been on campus during the Cougar Battalion Military Ball at the Doubletree Hotel in downtown Houston. For the festive evening, officers donned their dress blues and cadets wore their dress greens to praise the achievements of this year's cadets. One of the biggest achievements of the year was the cadets' performance at the Ranger Challenge competition. The seven members of the team used their military skills to compete against other schools in the region. The cadets took second place among 21 teams that vied for the prestigious honor of winning the rigorous competition in November. The Cougar Battalion walked away with the best finish in the program's history. Beginning in August, team members diligently prepared for the competition, arriving on campus in the pre-dawn hours to exercise. "Our cadets worked out two and a half hours a day, five days a week in order to do as well as they did," said Capt. Richard Erenbaum. Though seven cadets participated in the team competition, five or six cadets also competed in the individual events. "Each person is good in one or more events, so we used the best people for each event," said cadet Bilal Omarjee. The weekend competition held at Fort Hood consisted of five events: the Army physical-fitness test, weapon assembly, land navigation course, grenade assault, and a 10-kilometer ruck run. The Army physical-fitness test consisted of three timed events: two minutes of sit-ups, two minutes of push-ups and a two-mile run.
