McChord, Wash. (July 15, 2013)-- Celeste Diamond, a CBU Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) cadet, took first place July 11 for the female category of the 13th Regiment’s Army physical fitness test at Joint Base Lewis in McChord, Wash.
Diamond competed against 450 of her peers and achieved the highest women’s score of 369.
The APFT is broken into three parts, including the two-mile run, two-minute push-up and two-minute sit-up. Each cadet completes all three and then receives a score based on the Army’s APFT score chart.
APFT scores are based on the Army’s standards for age and gender. Cadets must receive at least 60 points in each event to qualify for the Army.
