For three days this spring, campus and community members joined for the Highlander Havoc fitness event to honor the 100 years of PC’s ROTC program.
The ROTC Highlander Battalion, Student Involvement and CrossFit864 partnered to sponsor the free military-style strength and conditioning event April 10-12.
Highlander Havoc combined the centennial celebration and a new Army combat fitness test for cadets, said Capt. Brian Casey, assistant professor of Military Science.
Participants tested their fitness in everything from push-ups, pull-ups, and a “sprint, drag, carry” on the lawn near Greenville Dining Hall. Each event was in an increment of 100 — either 100 seconds or 100 meters.
CrossFit864 co-owner Janice Long and Director of Student Involvement Daniel Adams both called Highlander Havoc a great partnership. They also noted the fun and importance of wellness.
“We were very excited to be involved, and it was really good to be there and to be asked to come,” Long said. “A lot of student-athletes got involved, and it was pretty cool to see them together along with the people walking by who decided to participate.”
Jonathan Hill, of Simpsonville, won the competition with a time of 2:31. Hill won a grand prize claymore sword.
